The Leader in Me & The 7 Habits of Happy Kids Introduction

LAE is a Leader in Me and 7 Habits of Happy Kids School!

The Leader in MeAs part of our PBIS program, LAE has adopted  “The Leader in Me  & The 7 Habits of Happy Kids” framework. This initiative encourages student development of important leadership and life skills.  When these skills are developed, school is a happier, safer place which supports increased student learning.  


Students will learn and practice each habit throughout the school year.  



The 7 Habits are:

Habit #1: Be Proactive: I am in Charge

Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind: Have a Plan

Habit #3: First Things First: Put 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


The 7 Habits of Happy Kids We are dedicated to continually strengthening our school and we are excited to continue growing our Leader In Me inspired school environment. 

We encourage families to learn more about it at and follow updates on our school website. Our school library also has this book available for student checkout.
