Wilson Elementary School celebrates Leadership Day

Students at Henry Wilson Elementary School marked the end of a successful academic year with a celebration of learning and leadership.  

Wilson has implemented the internationally praised “Leader in Me” principles into its everyday culture. They are based on the more well-known “7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” Similarly, the Leader in Me program developed for educators by author Stephen Covey equips children with the confidence and skills they need to thrive:

Fifth grader Abang was Leadership Day's emcee
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

A school assembly of music, speeches and recognitions began the Leadership Day program attended by parents and special guests, including superintendent Debra Livingston, Department of Education Commissioner Virginia Barry, and several members of the board of school committee.
