Eisenhower’s 8 Keys of Success
- Failure Leads to Success!
- Speak With Good Purpose!
- This Is It! Commitment!
These are the 8 Keys of Excellence, and they are a compilation of character traits that successful people possess. At Eisenhower, we recognize that students who learn to develop their character by making positive life choices live more fulfilled, successful lives. This year we are embedding the 8 Keys of Excellence into our PBIS program to continue to foster positive choices within our students so that they can be the best versions of themselves.
Each classroom has the 8 Keys prominently displayed as a visual reminder for the students to live by these character traits. This past Wednesday, in Homeroom, staff members modeled and taught the 8 Keys to their classes. Teachers are encouraging and embedding the 8 Keys within lessons. I encourage you to continue the conversations about the 8 Keys and character development with your children at home. For more information about the 8 Keys of Excellence and the positive impact it has on students, visit www.8keys.org .
