Bowmar is a "Leader In Me" School!

We are proud to report that Bowmar received a grant through the Chamber of Commerce to implement the "Leader in Me" program.  This summer our faculty and staff took part in various professional training opportunities where they learne how to correctly implement the program with their students and the school as a whole.

 

The "Leader in Me" is a whole-school transformation model that acts liek the operating system of a computer--it improves performacne of all other programs.  Based on "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", the "Leader in Me" produces transformational results transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents.  Better yet, the "Leader in Me" equips students with self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy.

 

Find out more about the "Leader in Me" during Open House on 11 October 2012.
