OMAR, W.Va. — Students at Omar Elementary showcased their skills of Leader in Me through a leadership program held Tuesday, May 3. Leadership Day was held in a student led assembly.
Special guests from the community and parents were invited to attend and see how the seven habits work at our school. The day was based on principles of The Leader in Me program developed by Stephen Covey and practiced in Logan County Schools. Leader in Me is designed to build leadership, accountability, responsibility, problem solving, adaptability, communication, initiative and self-direction, creativity, cross-cultural skills, and teamwork.
Omar Elementary is excited for the change Leader in Me has had so far within the school and even more excited for the change to come. At Omar, their mission is for students to be confident, knowledgeable, responsible, and productive citizens in a diverse, ever changing world.
The staff at Omar Elementary would like to extend our appreciation to all the special guests, parents, and all in attendance of the third annual Omar Elementary Leadership Day.
