Live Oak Elementary School

Growing Hearts and Minds, One Leader at a Time


Welcome to Live Oak Elementary School!
Home of the Falcons 
and a "Leader in Me" School
Vision Statement

The Live Oak team will empower and equip student leaders as passionate and skilled 21st century learners and are committed to closing the achievement gap for all learners, as guided by and outlined in the FUESD Blueprint for Student Success, resulting in increased achievement for all students.

Mission Statement

At Live Oak Elementary we believe that students succeed in an atmosphere where children are engaged, take responsibility for their learning, and respect themselves and others, therefore, a safe learning environment, high standards, and leadership goals are of greatest priority. As a professional learning community, we believe in the worth of every student, and as a result, strive to enable each child to become a self-confident, skilled, and successful citizen, ready to embrace college and career goals.  It is our collective mission and expectation that the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and the philosophies of the Leader in Me, will be developed, modeled, and fully integrated in everything we do at L.O.E. as we move toward achieving Lighthouse status from the Covey organization.

The Leader in Me

The Leader In Me at L.O.E. 

The Leader in Me The 7 Habits
What is The Leader In Me?
"Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Leader In Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st-century economy." ( 
A Common Language: The 7 Habits
"When everyone - teachers, students, and parents - begin using the same language, you get a compound-interest effect that is truly amazing. The 7 Habits create that common language. For example, what a difference it makes when everyone knows what it means to 'put first things first' or to 'seek first to understand' or to 'be proactive.' Leader In Me Schools often find their students using the language among themselves and with their parents: 'I need to put first things first and do my homework before I play'..." (

Thanks to our school counselor, Marilyn Thompson and our PTA president, Nicole Weber, the participants read, collaborated, and shared their insights every Tuesday morning in Room B13 on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families.
