East Pointe Leader in Me Lighthouse School

East Pointe Elementary Receives Worldwide Recognition
 
East Pointe Elementary has been named a Leader in Me Lighthouse School by the Franklin Covey Foundation. This prestigious designation belongs to only 350 schools worldwide. East Pointe began work as a Leader in Me school in 2013. The process of transforming the school culture to embrace leadership potential in each child and staff member began with the staff receiving the signature training of the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People". Once the staff was trained, students received instruction on how these habits can make them more successful as students, as well as productive citizens.
After an extensive review process, the Franklin Covey team toured East Pointe in February 2019 and came to the conclusion that the school had successfully made the transformation worthy of Lighthouse designation!
Congratulations to Dr. Josh Ray, his staff, students, and parents for their hard work and dedication!
Greenwood Public Schools is proud of East Pointe's accomplishment and happy to have two of the 350 Lighthouse schools in our district. Westwood Elementary was named a Lighthouse School in 2014 and most recently re-certified for continued Lighthouse status.
