Pryor's The Leader in Me Program, etc.

Don Raleigh, superintendent of Pryor Public Schools, shared two mentoring programs his school district uses.

One program is teaching leadership skills to elementary students through The Leader in Me program, developed from Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Pryor High School leaders teach the program, thus reinforcing the habits in themselves. The schools support the program in multiple ways. See below.

The secondary form is Walking Wednesdays, which provides the opportunity for high school students and their advisors to walk to school with elementary students. Each of the three elementary schools has a designated meeting place for parents to drop off their students. High school leaders, trained in pedestrian safety, teach the younger children. This activity also promotes exercise and fellowship.
