Counselor's Corner

Porter Elementary is proud to be a Leader in Me school, where we incorporate Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into our daily life. Students begin learning about the 7 Habits in Kindergarten and expand their understanding and application throughout their elementary school journey.

Incorporating The Leader in Me practices within our school’s environment and curriculum will help our students become even more ready to succeed in the 21st Century, with critical skills and characteristics such as: trustworthiness, a strong work ethic, motivation, problem-solving skills, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, a sense of teamwork, academic achievement and valuing diversity in a global market.

Integrating the 7 Habits into daily instruction will assist in developing the leadership abilities of our students, helping each child become leaders of their own learning and life. Students begin “owning” their learning through their leadership notebooks, and providing multiple leadership opportunities in every classroom and throughout our school for students.

Thank you for joining us on this journey! By developing the WHOLE child-- socially, emotionally, academically and ethically, we will foster a school climate that promotes everyday greatness!
