• Belmont Station Elementary School Guidance Lessons will be based on The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey.
    Students will be learning the following habits:
    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.
    *I am able to identify my hobbies and interests and think about what type of career I would be interested in pursuing.
    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. When I am in conflict with others, I look for solutions that work for everyone involved.
    Habit 5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood - Listen Before You Talk
    *I listen to other's ideas and feelings. I try to see things from other's viewpoints.  I listen to others when they talk without interrupting.
    Habit 6 - Synergize - Together is Better
    *I value other people and look for the strengths in all my team members.  I get along well with others and realize the importance of working on a team.
    Habit 7 - Sharpen the Saw - Balance Feels Best
     *I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep. I know it is important to take care of myself and learn as much as I can in my life.
