Dear Families of Willard Central Elementary,

At Willard Central Elementary, we believe that strong families help make strong
schools. In this spirit, we would like to invite parents to join us in a book study
of The 7 Highly Effective Habits of Teens by Sean Covey. As a school, our staff
and students have been working on The Leader in Me by Stephen Covey. This
process helps develop leadership in students and builds on Coveys work for the
7 Habits of Highly Effective People. While our students are not yet teens, this
book provides practical applications for instilling the 7 habits in your child and
your familys daily life in a reader-friendly manner.

Amanda Gooch, PTO President, and teachers, Bethany Siebert, Amanda Holmes
and Karen Collins will be helping facilitate this book study. They will be meeting
the following Saturdays from 8:00-10:00 at the Panera on Kansas Expressway.
They will discuss the book with parents interested in joining the conversation
and learning more about instilling the 7 habits in kids daily lives. The dates for
the book study will be:

January 23rd
February 27th
April 2nd
April 30th

You are welcome to purchase a copy of the book on your own or you can send
your payment to school and we will order the book for you. All orders are due
Dec. 9th so we can get copies of the books to parents before Christmas Break. If
you would like to commit to participating in the book study, but you are unable
to purchase a book, or if you have any questions, please contact the school
office at 831-4440 for assistance.

Thank you for your partnership in helping us build strong student leaders!

Shane Medlin, Principal

Please return to the school office by Dec. 9th.
