7 Habits Parent Resources
The Village Charter School is proud to be a Leader in Me school, but what does that mean? Have you ever heard of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey? The Leader in Me is the process of taking those habits and integrating them into the school culture to support the students in becoming confident, responsible, self-disciplined people. We invite families to learn about and incorporate the Habits at home as well, so we can all speak the same language and successfully incorporate these great concepts!
To assist our Village Community we are kicking off 7 Habits in 7 Weeks. You may already be doing many things that are in line with the Habits. By learning to specifically recognize them and pointing the Habits out, you will be using the same language the students have learned at school and will be encouraging more great choices. Every week until Spring Break a handout will be sent home to each family explaining the Habit of the Week, some simple ways to practice at home, and effective language to use.
Additionally, we will have an Adult 7 Habits Workshop on Tuesday March 13th from 6:30 - 8:00PM at the Wings Center (1875 Century Way Boise, ID 83709) and childcare will be available at Planet Kid. (Please watch for an evite around the first part of March as Wings will need a headcount in advance). This event is for parents, grandparents, and care givers to come learn more about the Habits, how the they are applied at school, and ask questions and share ideas about ways to use them at home.
Our hope is by creating a common language and expectation both at school and home, each child will have greater understanding of what these habits are and how they apply to their lives. Additionally, we hope families will enjoy utilizing this powerful tool. These timeless concepts are proven and successful for adults throughout the world and we want to support your family in finding the value in the Habits as well.
