Bellerive Elementary recertified as 'Leader in Me' Lighthouse School

9/16/2021 -- Bellerive Elementary has been recertified as an internationally recognized Leader in Me Lighthouse School by Franklin Covey Education. This recognition is evidence that the school has produced outstanding results in school and student outcomes, by implementing the Leader in Me process with fidelity and excellence. 

Nearly 4,500 schools worldwide participate in the Leader in Me program, which was founded by the Franklin Covey Co., but only 500 of them have earned Lighthouse certification. The recognition honors schools for achieving outstanding results in student and school outcomes by implementing Leader in Me processes and for the extraordinary impact the school is having on students, parents, staff and the greater community.

Bellerive was first named a Leader in Me school in 2015. The program is based on Stephen Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” and teaches leadership and life skills to students while creating a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.
