The Capitol Region Distinguished Service Award recipient for the 2016-17 academic year is Mr. Robert Snider from Golden Empire Elementary School in Sacramento City USD. Robert is a GATE Certificated teacher and has taught the GATE cluster at his school for 5+ years. Robert will be recognized for his service at the Annual CAG conference in San Diego.
Golden Empire is excited about receiving a five year grant which allows them to become a Leader In Me school. The grant, valued at $90,000, emphasizes the 7 Habits from Stephen Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Here are the 7 habits along with a quick summary of each:
1. BE PROACTIVE: You’re in Charge
2. BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND: - Have a Plan
3. PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST - Work First, Then Play
Is your child using the 7 Habits at home? Simply print out the certificate (link is on the right), cut it in half, and fill in your child’s name along with a brief explanation of how they fulfilled a particular habit. Have your student bring the certificate to their teacher.
A more thorough explanation of each habit is available on the Leader in Me parent resource page which you can access from the link on the right.
Come and meet your teacher on Tuesday, August 30 from 6 to 7 pm. Class lists will be posted and there will be FREE ice cream. This will be a great time for students to see friends and meet their classmates.
The PTO will have a table to answer questions and forms to join the PTO.
