    Meet Jose,  a La Paloma Leader:
     
      
     
     
     
     

     
    There are 7 Habits that we will be teaching and using at La Paloma:
     
     Habit 1
     Habit 1: Be Proactive
    I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.
     
     
     Habit 2  
     
    Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind 
    I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important pare of my classroom and contribute to my school's mission and vision.  
     Habit 3
    Habit 3: Put First Things First 
    I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and achieve my goals. I am disciplined and organized. 
     
    Habit 4  
     Habit 4: Think Win-Win 
    I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others' Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives. I look for ways to be a good citizen. 
     
    Habit 5  
    Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood 
    I listen to other people's ideas and feelings. I try to see from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking. 
     
    Habit 6  
    Habit 6: Synergize 
    I value other people's strengths and learn from them. I work well in groups, even with people who are different than me. I seek out other people's ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions  than can anyone of us alone. I am humble.  
     
    Habit 7  
    Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw  
    I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep. I spend time with my family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I take times to find meaningful ways to help others.  
     
     
    At home, we invite you to embrace the 7 Habits and offer you guides to help you at home:
     
     
     
    See you all on our path to GREATNESS!!
