In 2014, Reagan began its journey as a Leader in Me school. Through Stephen Covey’s Leader in Me program, students are taught about the 7 Habits:
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Habit 3: Put First Things First
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Habit 6: Synergize
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
Leader in Me emphasizes student leadership on campus. Reagan students have the opportunity to serve the campus on the Student Lighthouse Team and other Student Leadership Roles. Each classroom also has student leadership roles for students to have leadership opportunities in their classrooms.
At the end of each 6 weeks, all students and staff assemble together in the gym for a Pep Rally. During the Pep rally, students participate in sharing the 7 Habits through skits and other performances. Students are also recognized for meeting goals and academic accomplishments such as the Kiwanis BUGS (Bringing Up Grades) Awards, Accelerated Reader Awards, and Math Numeracy Driver’s Licences. Students exhibiting Reagan’s Guidelines for Success, Keep IT R.E.A.L. (Respect, Effort, Attitude, and Leadership) are also recognized.
The Family Learning Action Team develops opportunities for students to take the 7 Habits home and teach the habits to their families with a variety of activities. Families also have the opportunities to learn more about the 7 Habits during the annual Spring Carnival. During the Spring Carnival, families participate in games and a variety of activities to learn more about or practice the 7 Habits. Families also enjoy Sharpen the Saw alley where they spend time playing fun carnival games.
