WATERLOO | Orange Elementary has been designated by FranklinCovey as only the second Lighthouse School in Iowa.
FranklinCovey visited Orange last week to confirm Leader in Me has been implemented as a whole school transformational model. It involves academics, leadership and a culture where you can see, hear and feel the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
“The keys to our mission, to educate, inspire and lead - make the world a better place, have been brought to life on this journey,” said Orange Principal Teri Trask.
Orange is now one of only 123 Lighthouse Schools in the world. The official announcement will be made at the Leader in MeR Symposium at UNI this week where Sean Covey, senior vice president of innovations and products at FranklinCovey will address educators and congratulate Orange on their achievement.
Orange will have a special celebration when the banner is presented.
