The Leader in Me

The Leader in Me logo

In Spring 2014, Line Creek was awarded a grant  through the Franklin Covey Foundation to begin implementing components of The Leader in Me. The Leader in Me focuses on developing leaders with 21st century skills.  It is an innovative, school wide model that enables educators to unleash each child's full potential.

The grant includes The Leader in Me books by Stephen Covey, mentor texts for each grade level to aide in introducing and teaching the habits to our students, visual lettering for around the building so students can visually see the habits and professional development time for our Leader in Me team to work collaboratively on the implementation plan for Line Creek. 

Our hope is that you will partner with us in promoting and using these habits at home too.  We think you will find them easy to incorporate into your daily life and that students will be excited to use them at home and school.  If you would like a copy of the posters for home, please contact your classroom teacher.
