Poca Elementary School is a "Leader in Me" School! Our mission is to develop leaders, one child at a time, by reinforcing these Habits:

Habit 1: Be Proactive  ( I am responsible. I choose my actions and do not blame others. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.)

Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind ( I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and I make a positive difference that contributes to my school. I am a good citizen.) 

Habit 3: Put First Things First ( I spend my time on things that are important. I say NO to things I should not do. I am organized and disciplined by following my schedule and priorities.) 

Habit 4: Think Win-Win ( I balance what I need and want with consideration for others' needs and wants so everyone wins and conflicts are avoided. )

Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood ( I listen to other people's ideas and try to see things from their viewpoints. I do not interrupt when others speak. I listen then speak.)

Habit 6: Synergize ( Working together is best. I listen to other people's ideas to solve problems because I know teaming with others creates better solutions.)

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw ( I take care of myself by eating right, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep. I spend time with family and friends and find ways to help others.)
