Parent Lighthouse Team Forming

As a Leader in Me school, we currently have a Staff Lighthouse Team as well as a Student Lighthouse Team. The next phase of our Leader in Me implementation is to create a Parent Lighthouse Team, which will help us continue our mission of Learning & Leading at Cooper. We met this past week with some parents to brainstorm ideas on how to develop this team. The list below are just some of the ideas that came out of this meeting:
  • Include at least one parent from each classroom on the Parent Lighthouse Team.
  • Host a book study around the Leader in Me book by Stephen Covey.
  • Increase communication with families to inform and support the 7 Habits at home (i.e. email blasts,  blog posts, notes home in backpacks, and social media).
  • Reach out to new families to welcome them and to help foster a sense of community (i.e Class of 2022).
  • Support a student driven community outreach activity.
We are so grateful to the parents who were able to join us to help generate so many suggestions and ideas. We are excited to get this team up and running in the fall! Stay tuned for more information when we return to school in September.

In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the Leader in Me, you may be interested in reading the book as well as The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. Both of these books were written by Stephen Covey.
