THE LEADER IN ME is based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. It is an initiative
that the Holy Cross family (administration, faculty, staff, and students in PreK-Grade 8)
is implementing and modeling.
Administrators, teachers, and support staff receive continuing training in the 7 Habits
and how to implement THE LEADER IN ME initiative into their everyday lives and the curriculum. This training is
crucial to the success of the process.
THE LEADER IN ME is creating a culture that instills in
our students that each of them is a leader in some way - at school and at home. THE LEADER IN ME
inspires a student-led culture that is very evident at Holy Cross. The students are developing
and using leadership and life skills they will take with them throughout
their adult life such as goal setting, self-directed learning, critical thinking,
listening and speaking, and the ability to work in cooperative groups - everything
they will use to become a successful leader in the community.
