We are thrilled to be rolling out the Leader In Me program at our school, we have already seen our wonderful students embracing the program in all grades.  Please see the Leader in Me Parent Guide below to learn about several things you can do at home as a family to reinforce the principles your child learns at school.

The Leader in Me 7 Habits

  1. Be Proactive
  2. Begin with the End in Mind
  3. Put First Things First
  4. Think Win-Win
  5. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
  6. Synergize
  7. Sharpen the Saw



As a school, we create a learning environment that encourages students to interact with the content they are learning.  While students are deepening their content knowledge, teachers continuously highlight the 21st century skills students need to understand content, complete tasks, and master skills.  Through this, students will see that the work they are engaged in has true value and relevance to their lives in and beyond school.   Along with understanding the importance and purpose behind their work, our 21st century learning environment also helps students identify their strengths and areas for growth.  This metacognition is vital to student growth and development; it allows them to continually and purposefully reflect on their progress as learners and critical thinkers.  Ultimately, the 21st Century Skills Focus will provide the Lutz Preparatory community with a common understanding of what skills our students need to become lifelong learners and who are “compassionate and strong in character.”
