• The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.  Murphy Elementary is in it's 3rd year of The Leader In Me.  Check out the link's on the left for more information regarding the program!

Leadership Notebooks

  • This year, Murphy Elementary is working hard on our classroom leadership notebooks.  Each class has chosen specific W.I.G.s (wildly important goals) to focus on in their classroom and we are tracking our progress in our notebooks.  The following are the sections that each classroom should have in their notebooks:

    1. My Self

    2. My W.I.G.s

    3. My Learning

    4. My Leadership

    5. My Celebrations

Wildly Important Goals

  • W.I.G.s are also known as Wildly Important Goals.  These goals are decided on as a building and tracked in our classrooms and on our hallway scoreboards.  This year, Murphy has decided to focus on reading and attendance.  

    Our building attendance goal is that 96% of our students will be at school every day.  You can see our attendance tracked daily on the bulletin board by the office.  This is completed by our building attendance leaders.  

    Reading goals are decided within the classroom and are tracked in students leadership notebooks, classroom scoreboards, and hallway scoreboards.

PTO Meetings

  • Each month a different grade level will be presenting a habit after the PTO meeting.  PTO meetings run from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Habit presentations will be immediately following the meeting from 7 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Below is the schedule and times for these meetings!
