The Leader In Me Program at Waynesburg & Crab Orchard

Waynesburg Elementary Principal Mark Upchurch, says there are two words that every student at his school hears every day--two words that he says are making a positive difference. 

"Two words students hear every morning when they get here--from students, teachers and myself are 'good morning'. Kids come to me now and say, 'Good morning, Mr. Upchurch.' When kids are saying good morning," Upchurch continues,  "their perception of that morning is automatically different than when they're just walking around with their heads down. It impacts the way they see the day that's in front of them."

This small action is just one step that teachers and support staff at Waynesburg Elementary are taking in an effort to create a more positive school culture, an effort that, according to educational research, will make a huge difference in student achievement. It is an intentional approach based on Dr. Stephen R. Covey's work in his best-selling book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

The school-wide transformation process, called The Leader in Me, is also being implemented at Crab Orchard Elementary. According to Principal Dreama Tomlison, it is a long-term commitment.
