Cool Schools: Bains Elementary
BATON ROUGE- Students and teachers at Bains Elementary in West Feliciana routinely practice the "seven habits of highly effective people."
Here are the seven habits:
1. Be proactive
2. Begin with the end in mind
3. Put first things first
4. Think win-win
5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood
7. Sharpen the saw
Every day the students recite these habits and talk about how they're living them out. A handful of students at the school are part of a leadership group called The Luminous Leaders.
"We just started something new, we would shake people's hands once they came in, greet them and make them have a happy feeling," says Devarre Dyson, a 5th grader at the school.
Dyson believes the habits have already sparked a change in the way he acts.
We salute you Bains Elementary, for having really great habits and making your school really cool.
