I am grateful to God that we have been able to provide an excellent Catholic Education for the newly graduated class of 2016, as well as those who fill the ranks of the classes behind them. There are new and exciting days ahead. St. Wendelin Catholic School is embarking on an exciting, student-driven leadership initiative. The Leader in Me© is Franklin Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People© principles developed for students in grade school through high school.
I am pleased that The Leader in Me’s blueprint into leadership education will commence for our school beginning June 2016. Our belief has always been in educating the whole child and preparing them for life. It’s amazing to think that these leadership skills which have been taught in corporate boardrooms and industries throughout the nation and around the world are coming to our school to help our students become ingrained in the seven habits, preparing them to be successful leaders in a competitive 21st century workforce and in other life opportunities.
This is more than a program. It is truly a cultural change that will certainly impact the lives of our students, teachers, parents and community. This is the kind of change that occurred when we transformed the face of education by introducing technology into the classroom. Just as technology changed the classroom forever, so will The Leader in Me initiative.
Attached is a link to the June Leader in Me Newsletter. Going forward this page will be used to share all of St. Wendelin’s amazing Leader in Me news with parents, students, and the community.
