Introducing the 7 Habits
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Barry students will learn more about the 7 Habits throughout the school year. The following information was shared with students during our first morning assembly:
The first 3 habits help us to be more independent. They help us to be more responsible, to set priorities, and to achieve goals by staying focused and disciplined.
Habit 4, 5, and 6 help us to get along and work with others. These habits include skills for conflict resolution, communicating with others, teamwork, and dealing with diversity.
Our focus for August and September:
First Habit-Be Proactive
· Be in charge of yourself
· Take initiative
· Don’t blame others for your mistakes
· Do the right thing without being asked even when no one is looking
· You are in control of your attitude, mood, and actions
Talk with your child about how they can be proactive both at home and at school.
Teachers have reviewed our pirate privilege plan with all students. The plan and pirate privilege cards can be found in your child's planner. We encourage you to check your child's planner on a regular basis.
Any transportation changes must be made by 2:00. Please call our office to communicate these changes.
