This year, Westhampton Beach Elementary School adopted a new character education program, The Leader in Me. The new program provides comprehensive leadership activities and challenges that are woven into curriculum. The goal is to teach students to understand and practice the “seven habits of happy kids.” The program, which is transforming schools across the country, is all-encompassing and introduces language that is incorporated into daily routines. Through the activities, students will learn and understand the seven habits, including: be proactive; begin with the end in mind; put first things first; think win-win; seek first to understand, then be understood; synergize; and sharpen the saw.
