Students Present Leadership Program

Teachers and parents gained insight into Riverhead Central School District’s Riley Avenue Elementary School’s “Leader in Me” pilot program during the school’s first Leadership Day on Feb. 7. 

As part of the event, students used skills they had acquired through the initiative, such as public speaking, eye contact and data tracking, to present attendees with a tour of classrooms that have employed the program. 

Spearheaded by second-grade teacher Lauren McDonald, the Leader in Me program weaves comprehensive leadership activities and challenges into the curriculum. The goal is to teach students life skills such as responsibility, accountability, problem-solving, adaptability, communication and teamwork. 

All of the activities and challenges are based on Stephen Covey’s books “The Leader in Me” and “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” and Sean Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Happy Kids.” 

Leadership Day concluded with a question-and-answer session in which teachers learned how to incorporate the program into their classrooms and parents were provided with a guide for using it in their homes.
