Last week, Pierce's teacher sent home a paper letting us know that their class had the chance to sing at leadership night.
Not sure exactly what that meant, but I said he would be there.
And as usual with Pierce, he didn't give me much scoop on what the night was about. Mostly because I think he didn't really know, he just knew he had to sing.
So a gym full of parents piled in to see what this was all about.....
The school has implemented the 'Leader In Me' program, and it's based on this book right here.
There were presentations, songs, and even a talk to us parents about how we can be pro-active about our own emotions.
THAT was exactly what I was thinking as I sat there taking it all in.
School is just so much different now than when I was a student, you know in 1842.
Back when I was a student, we were told to just do the work. I was never encouraged to BE PROACTIVE or BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND. Uh, no.
And for the most part, I think it's pretty awesome. Some of it felt a little too zen for me, but overall I think it's GREAT.
Enter Pierce and his class.
They have been practicing very hard on a little song all about the 7 habits...
Poor little things, they were so nervous! And quiet! Hilarious! They sounded like little mice. (And honestly, could my camera take more ghetto pictures?)
But they made it through, and brilliantly so I might add.
Thankful for an education that is thinking outside the box, and teaching our children to be leaders! (Somebody cue a Whitney Houston song!)
