The Leader in Me

LAE is a Leader in Me and 7 Habits of Happy Kids School!

  • As part of our PBIS program, LAE has adopted  “The Leader in Me  & The 7 Habits of Happy Kids” framework. This initiative encourages student development of important leadership and life skills.  When these skills are developed, school is a happier, safer place which supports increased student learning.  


    Students will learn and practice each habit throughout the school year.  

    The 7 Habits of Happy Kids


    The 7 Habits are:

    Habit #1: Be Proactive: I am in Charge

    Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind: Have a Plan

    Habit #3: First Things First: Put Work First, then Play

    Habit #4: Think Win-Win: Everyone can Win

    Habit #5: Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood: Listen before you Talk

    Habit #6: Synergize: Together is Better

    Habit #7: Sharpen the Saw: Balance Feels Best


    We  are dedicated  to continually strengthening our school and we are excited to continue growing our Leader In Me inspired school environment. 

    We encourage families to learn more about it at and follow updates on our school website. Our school library also has this book available for student checkout.
