Students at F. E. Burleson Elementary School used songs, skits and readings to demonstrate their knowledge and application of the Seven Habits of an Effective Leader at Leadership Day on Thursday morning, May 5.

Each class, pre-K through fourth grade, had its own time slot to present its version of one of the leadership habits while parents and grandparents looked on, listened and showed their support from the audience.

“Early in the school year, each class was assigned one of the seven habits and asked to dig deep into its meaning and prepare a student-led presentation for other students during the school year as well as parents at Leadership Day,” Principal Debbie Queen explained.

“What you’re seeing today is the result of their dedication, hard work and leadership development.”

“They are demonstrating their leadership ability in so many ways,” she pointed out. “For example, one group of students started a green team and took the lead in seeking the replacement of Styrofoam food trays with environmentally friendly ones. “We are amazed at the level students are showing good leadership skills since we became a Leader in Me school a few years ago.”

The Seven Habits were presented by the classes as follows: “Habit 1: “Be Proactive,” fourth grade; Habit 2: “Begin with the End in Mind,” third grade; Habit 3: Put First Things First,” first grade; Habit 4: “Think Win-Win,” second grade: Habit 5: “Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood,” Burleson Singers; Habit 6: Synergize,” pre-K; and Habit 7: “Sharpen the Saw,” kindergarten.

Anna Pilkinton was fourth grade leader for the fourth grade and Braelyn Harvel was the third grade student leader.

Music teacher Stephanie Porter directed the Burleson singers and worked with each class on its musical contribution to the program.
