The 7 Habits of Happy Kids

This year at Rio Vista School, our students and staff are focusing on Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids.  The 7 Habits are wonderful leadership qualities that students can learn and utilize throughout their schooling and into adulthood.   Each month, we recognize 2-3 students per class who have demonstrated the Habit of focus for that month.  Please review the 7 Habits with your children and encourage them to practice these habits at school, home, and in the community.  Thank you for your support!
