This afternoon, the students and staff of IREC enjoyed an engaging presentation about the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids. Steve Harmer has been a magician for 30 years. He came to IREC today to introduce and review the 7 Habits. The students were captivated by his tricks and his message.

Things to remember from the presentation:
Habit 1 — Be Proactive - You're in Charge
I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

Habit 2 — Begin with the End in Mind - Have a Plan
I plan ahead and set goals. 

Habit 3 — Put First Things First  - Work First, Then Play
 I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.
 
Habit 4 — Think Win-Win - Everyone Can Win
 I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others
want. 

Habit 5 — Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood - Listen Before You Talk
 I listen to others without interrupting. I look people in the eyes when talking.

 Habit 6 — Synergize - Together Is Better
 I work well in groups/TEAMs. 

Habit 7 — Sharpen The Saw - Balance Feels Best

 I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend
time with family and friends.

The students in 3SB thought: 
    My favorite thing was when he pulled the dove out of the newspaper. (Haylie)
    I loved the performance. Good Act. (Brooke)
    I liked the bunny! (Aidan)
