The ability to read is the foundation of learning.

Struggling readers greatly benefit from their families' involvement and help at home. The following links will give you the information and tools you need.

7 HABITS

The information below was taken from the book "The Leader in Me" by Stephen Covey

HABIT 1: BE PROACTIVE (You're in charge)
I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

HABIT 2: BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND (Have a Plan)
I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school's mission and vision, and look for ways to be a good citizen.

HABIT 3: PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST (Work First, then Play)
I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities , make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.

HABIT 4: THINK WIN-WIN (Everyone can Win)
I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others' Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.

HABIT 5: SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD (Listen Before You Talk)
I listen to other people's ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

HABIT 6: SYNERGIZE (Together is Better)
I value other people's strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others , even people who are different from me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people's ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than any one of use along. I am humble.

HABIT 7: SHARPEN THE SAW (Balance Feels Best)
I take care of my body by eating right, exercising , and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I take time to find meaningful ways to help others.


HEALTHY START HEALTHY FAMILIES

The Ohio Legislature in 2007 adopted measure to provide free health coverage to uninsured children through the state's Medicaid Program. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, many children who are eligible for this coverage remain uninsured. You can help get the word out.
