Leader in Me: Habit 5

During the month of January, we will be learning about Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. People who seek first to understand, then to be understood try to completely understand another person before presenting their own point of view. Habit 5 means balancing courage and consideration and expressing our views with clarity and respect.

Listen Before You Talk: I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

Winter Gear

Please let us know if your child is in need of winter gear. We have many items available. Thank to our Hanawalt Community for being so supportive and donating items.
