BIG RAPIDS — Brookside Elementary School students were encouraged to tell a little about themselves during an assembly Wednesday. Part of the “Leader in Me” assembly allowed a few students from each class to stand up and say something they are good at or something they are working on.

Leader in Me is a leadership-based learning program to teach students to follow seven habits: Be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek first to understand then to be understood, synergize and sharpen the saw.

With these habits, teachers encourage students to work with a goal in mind, together with others and before playing, as well as how to take care of themselves by eating right and getting enough sleep.

The assemblies are put on once a month at Brookside, and the Student Leadership Team organizes the event. Each assembly focuses on a different habit of the seven, includes a habit song and recognizes students with the Caught being a Cardinal award.
