I hope that all is well with each of you at home and that you are enjoying the beautiful weather as we move from the heat of summer to our amazing winter months. We have been in school now for over two months. I’ve certainly enjoyed working with your students this year! They are wonderful young people.
One of our goals as a school this year is to share more of the Leader in Me and the 7 Habits with our families. A great opportunity has presented itself and I’d like to share it with you. Riverside Elementary is also participating in the Leader in Me and is offering a chance for our parents to attend a parent workshop. The workshop will be taught by Kalli Sampson, a parent at Riverside who has become a strong believer and advocate for the Leader in Me and how it has changed her family.
WORKSHOP INFORMATION: This is a live, certified, engaging, family-strengthening training based on Stephen R. Covey’s #1 bestsellers The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families.
Workshop participants will learn to:
- Apply an “Inside-Out Approach” to problem solving and goal creation
- Resolve differences in marriage and family relationships by creatively cooperating together
- Establish a better work/life balance
- Become more effective in raising emotionally healthy and empowered children
- Employ the skills of Empathic Listening and synergy
- Learn to discipline and motivate children effectively
The offer to participate in this workshop series as a gift from the Riverside Leader in Me initiative, at no cost to you, has been extended to the participants of this workshop.
The workshop is divided into three sessions. To participate you need to commit to attend all three sessions. This opportunity is available to all parents. Adults only, no children. This could be your date night, or girls night out (or guys night out) for three weeks! Space is limited and we appreciate your commitment to attend all three sessions if you register to participate. We know this is a significant time commitment and we are grateful for your willingness to participate. Together we can strengthen our families and community.
