The Seven Habits

Hanawalt staff participated in professional development on January 2nd and 3rd over the The 7 Habits. Hanawalt will be an official Leader in Me School.

A Whole-School Transformation Process. The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey's whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People are:

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergize (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

Bike Rack

We have a new bike rack at Hanawalt. It was installed by the staff parking lot near the front of the school. I hope when the weather is nicer to see more bike riders to Hanawalt.

Plastic Bags for Benches

Here is a reminder that the Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts are still collecting plastic bags for the Build With Bags program. The donations have slowed down a bit, so I just wanted to remind everyone that we are still collecting them. Our goal is to collect enough for 2 benches, and we are close to having collected enough for 1 already.
