At Beach Elementary, we are thrilled to be a Leader in Me school. The Leader in Me is an innovative, school-wide model that increases teacher effectiveness, student engagement, and academic achievement, while preparing students to be leaders in the 21st century.  From the FranklinCovey website:

The Leader in Me process also helps to create a common language within a school, built on proven principle-based leadership skills found in Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:

    • Habit1: Be Proactive® • You’re in Charge
    • Habit2: Begin With the End in Mind® • Have a Plan
    • Habit3: Put First Things First® • Work First, Then Play
    • Habit4: Think Win-Win® • Everyone Can Win
    • Habit5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood® • Listen Before You Talk
    • Habit6: Synergize® • Together Is Better
    • Habit7: Sharpen the Saw® • Balance Feels Best

We are excited about the journey we are taking as we implement the 7 Habits in our lives at school and at home.  Beach Elementary is committed to becoming a Lighthouse School through The Leader in Me program.  Students and staff will LEARN and LIVE the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  We believe that every student is a leader and provide opportunities for EACH and EVERY child to shine!
