Students Make Get Well Cards for 7 Habits Author

At Eastlake Elementary students take great pride in knowing and living The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It’s the basis for The Leader in Me program. But when fifth graders in Mrs. Simi’s class found out the author of The 7 Habits was seriously injured in a cycling accident, they wanted to reach out. They wanted to give something back to author Stephen Covey, a man from whom they’ve learned so much. So, each student crafted a homemade get well card. They told Mr. Covey he was a good example to kids by wearing a helmet while cycling. They also encouraged Covey to continue on the road to recovery.  And like Mr. Covey teaches in The 7 Habits, the students told him to never give up.
