We are so very excited to invite you to our very 1st Leader In Me Family Night on Thursday, February 8th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. This will be a fun-filled event where student leaders teach our families about the 7 Habits and show off some of their leadership skills.

Each grade level is involved in planning and preparing to make this night a successful event!

5th Grade ~ Teach the 7 Habits and record the event

4th Grade ~ Organize a Leader In Me "Follow the Leadership Road" scavenger hunt

3rd grade ~ Perform a 7 Habits song

2nd grade ~ Create table top discussion cards about leadership and the habits

1st grade ~ Create table top discussion cards about leadership and the habits

Kindergarten ~ Make and serve refreshments Art class, kids will be designing water bottle labels to be handed out that night as part of the refreshments

Ask your child how they are playing a part in helping to make this night a very special time to learn and lead using The 7 Habits!!

You won’t want to miss this night of leadership and entertainment!
