About TLIM

  • What is The Leader in Me?

    We see children differently and it changes everything. The Leader in Me model sees that every child is a leader, everyone has genius, everyone can influence change, students can lead their own learning and achievement is measured on many levels of the person, not just academic. This approach to teaching and learning changes everything.

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

    The principals and training material Holy Cross use in TLIM program are based on world-class content developed by one of the thought-leaders in the leadership industry, Franklin Covey. The Seven Habits have empowered and inspired people across all age groups and professions for over 25 years.

  • TLIM Course Curriculum Section

    All students (including PreK) are encouraged to practice the 7 Habits and opportunities are integrated into all aspects of their learning from classroom management. For example, each classroom has a student assigned the role of communications manager which includes answering the phone and door.

    Each week begins with a Monday Morning assembly planned by students and highlights one of the 7 Habits.

    Students are issued a data notebook where they record goals and progress towards those goals. Known as WIGs or wildly important goals, are reviewed regularly with an accountability partner. All students and staff (including our custodian Mr. Bill!) have developed WIGs.


    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families

    A strong family unit is critical to the social and emotional foundation children require to develop their full potential as leaders, students and productive citizens of our community. Holy Cross Catholic School recognizes the importance of the family unit and aids families with inspiration and valuable resources through use of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families principals. Annual family workshops are offered to help families practice The 7 Habits at home and reinforce what is learned at school. The outcome of this effort has been increased confidence in students, increased communication with parents and visible vitality of family life.
