Welcome to Countryside Elementary!
We are so grateful for the opportunity to teach your children not only academics but character traits as well. This year we will continue to use the program, Leader in Me, based on Stephen Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People. Each month, we'll focus on one of the following habits:
- Be Proactive
- Begin with the end in mind
- Put first things first
- Think Win-Win
- Seek first to understand, then to be understood
- Sharpen the Saw
Our goal is for students to become independent problem solvers from kindergarten through fourth grade. If you're interested in learning more, here's a link to the book we read together as a staff last year Leader in Me, and the children's book we have been using with students, The 7 Habits of Happy Kids. We firmly believe the connection between home and school is vital for success with everything we do, and we truly appreciate your support.
As always, it is a blessing to work with you and your children as we serve together striving to meet the needs of all our students.
