The Leader In Me

The Leader In Me, Great Happens Here

  • The start of the new school year is always and exciting time for our Central staff.  Just last month, our Central Instructional Team completed four days of professional training in preparation for the launch of "The Leader In Me" program to our Central students this school year.  We have a great staff of enthusiastic, creative and talented teachers who are absolutely thrilled to be able to bring this incredible program based on "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey to your children at Central Elementary 

    As the school year gets underway, your child will be learning the 7 Habits Language and what it means to apply these principles in their lives as students and leaders in our school and community.  The 7 Habits are:  Be Proactive; Begin with the End in Mind; Put First Things First; Think Win-Win; Seek First to Understand then to be Understood; Synergize; and Sharpen the Saw.

    Our Central staff believes in the leadership potential in ALL of our Central students.  Through "The Leader in Me" process we want to support our students in building cooperative relationships, nurture self-confidence and create critical thinkers who are goal oriented students and leaders of their own learning! 

    With the launch of "The Leader in Me" we are also leading the way in Boone County as the first elementary school to implement this program.  THANK YOU to all of you who have been supportive of "The Leader in Me" program at Central, and more importantly, our vision of "Developing and Inspiring Student Leaders to Aim High*Reach High!"

    Yours in education,

    Rebecca Outcalt, Principal
