Leader in Me

lim pic.jpg  Padan Elementary School in Vacaville is proud to complete the first year of a journey toward becoming a Stephen Covey Leader In Me Lighthouse School. As a Leader in Me School, students will discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey’s book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leader in Me Schools receive national recognition for its emphasis on developing leadership in young children. Incorporating Leader in Me practices within our school’s environment and curriculum will help our students become even more ready to succeed in the 21st Century, with critical skills and characteristics such as: trustworthiness, strong work ethic, motivation, problem-solving skills, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, a sense of teamwork, academic achievement and valuing diversity in a global market. By developing the WHOLE-child; socially, emotionally, academically and ethically, we will foster a school climate that promotes greatness!  For more information please visit
