Welcome to Schoolcraft Early Elementary School!
Welcome to Schoolcraft Early Elementary. We are a Pre K, Young 5s and Kindergarten School in Schoolcraft, Michigan.
We are proud to share that we are a Leader in Me School. As a Leader in Me School, students will discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey's book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The Leader in Me schools receive national recognition for their emphasis on developing leadership in young children.
Incorporating The Leader in Me practices within our school's environment and curriculum will help our students become even more ready to succeed in the 21st Century, with critical skills and characteristics such as: trustworthiness, a strong work ethic, motivation, problem-solving skills, goal setting, effective interpersonal skills, a sense of teamwork, academic achievement, and valuing diversity in a global market. By developing the WHOLE child—socially, emotionally, academically, and ethically, we will foster a school culture that promotes everyday greatness!
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.”
John Quincy Adams
