The Leader In Me

Leader in Me banner

Our mission at Sonny Carter is to create a culture in which students are empowered to become confident leaders of themselves who will have a positive impact on their community.

We are so excited about the Leader in Me at Carter this year! The Leader in Me is based on Dr. Stephen Covey's 7 Habits. These habits teach 21st century leadership and life skills to students and create a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Please read our Falcons Creed and a short description of each Habit.

The winds of change are blowing at Sonny Carter. We hope you will all be swept away with us!

As a Leader in Me school, we operate in the paradigm of developing the whole child. While we do place a heavy importance on academics, we also intentionally create an empowering culture where students can discover and apply their unique interests, talents, and skills quarterly through C.L.U.B.S. (Carter Leaders Unite By Synergizing). Some examples of the clubs available to students are art, technology, science, book, games, sportsmanship, cheer, math, makerspace, animal, Lego, STEAM, etc.

The school-wide W.I.G. is for students to increase their scaled score by 100 points by May 2020 in ELA and math. 
All students participate in clubs. All students are required to participate in a service project ranging from representing the school, performing, or crafting items for others. 

All students have a leadership roll at Carter. There are classroom and school wide leadership roles such as broadcast, flag patrol, bulletin board leaders, etc.
