Green Valley ES students showcase Leader in Me skills

Green Valley Elementary School opened its doors and welcome members of the Mexican-American School Board Association (MASBA) on September 9th and provide insights on its success as a Leader in Me School. Students shared some of the practices they have adopted to develop new skills and principle-centered effectiveness with the 7 Habits of High Effective People training.

Green Valley Elementary School is also the first SCUC campus to earn the designation as a FranklinCovey certified Lighthouse School, certifying that the school has produced outstanding results in school and student outcomes. Sippel Elementary School is the also certified as a Leader in Me School.

MASBA is a voluntary, non-profit, statewide education association that has served local Texas school boards since 1970. It is focused on closing achievement gaps in our Texas public schools, particularly for the Hispanic students who comprise a majority in the public schools of Texas.  MABSA members visiting Green Valley ES were comprised of school board members and superintendents and toured three school districts as part of its Best Practices Tour.
