    Schoolwide Character Education Program

    Eagle Point Elementary is a Leader in Me school.  It is a whole-school transformation model based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents.  It equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.  Eagle Point Elementary was the first school in Broward County to implement The Leader in Me, with sponsorship from FranklinCovey and Lighthouse Team consultants.  FranklinCovey sponsors the services and materials to include training staff, student materials, teacher/staff guides, classroom materials, and consultation with the Lighthouse Team.  The program empowers students to take responsibility for their own learning and progress through the implementation of data binders and student led conferences.  Empowering students to take ownership of their learning will serve them well throughout life.  More importantly, it provides a strong foundation which prepares students to be college and career ready. Each month students are celebrated and acknowledged for demonstrating the 7 habits at an awards ceremony, which they receive a leader of the month certificate.  We encourage you to visit their website at:  www.theleaderinme.org/
