Habit 2, Begin With the End in Mind

Habit 2 teaches that Beginning with the End in Mind, having a mental picture of achieving a goal, can lead to a better way of doing it. For example, imagine how difficult it would be to put together a 500 piece puzzle without a finished picture of it, cooking a new dish without a recipe, or driving to a new place without a map.

Be Proactive Activity

To be Proactive means to be the leader of your choices and behaviors. Habit 1, Be Proactive, is the key to all of the other habits; that’s why it comes first.

Picture two circles. The inner circle is your Circle of Control. It includes things you are the leader of; your attitude, your choices and your responses. Surrounding the circle of control is the Circle of No Control. It includes things you have no control over; the weather, past mistakes, a comment someone makes.

Cooper's Second Work-a-thon

Synergyzing was in the air at Cooper on Friday, February 1, 2013, as another large group of students, parents and staff came together to continue the transformation of our school. The focus of this work-a-thon was to paint five student bathrooms and begin work on the cafe'. Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped!

Work begins on painting "chefs" who "serve" up the habits!
The girls chose the color scheme for this chef!
Brightening up the boys bathroom with a fresh coat of paint!
The cafe was buzzing with ideas and creativity! 
One of the girls bathrooms is now pretty in pink!
The a la carte window gets a facelift!
Thanks to all of our volunteers!
