Author Sean Covey to visit local schools

Public invited to hear about ‘The Leader in Me’

Express Staff Writer

Sean Covey

Parents and members of the public are invited to hear author Sean Covey, developer of The Leader in Me program, at school assemblies Thursday in Ketchum, Hailey and Bellevue.

The Leader in Me program, now in place at several schools in the Blaine County School District, is based upon Covey's book "The Seven Habits of Healthy Kids." The program is designed to support academic success with character development integrated into the curriculum.

The program was piloted last year at Hailey Elementary School and Carey School. Pleased with the results, the school board voted in April to extend the program to Hemingway, Woodside and Bellevue elementary schools.

Results so far with the program at those schools will be discussed at school assemblies at each of them on Thursday. Each discussion will be followed by a speech from Covey.

Events kick off at Hemingway in Ketchum with a "7-Habits Assembly" scheduled to run from 8:15-8:35 a.m. The assembly will be followed by a Covey speech scheduled to last until 8:55 a.m.

At Woodside elementary in Hailey, a 7-Habits Assembly is scheduled to run from 10-10:20 a.m., followed by a Covey speech lasting until 10:40 a.m.

Bellevue elementary is scheduled for a 7-Habits Assembly from 1:25-1:50 p.m., with a Covey speech to follow and lasting until 2:10 p.m.
