Nolley Elementary School (Akron, OH). “I can see the leader in you!” is one of Nolley Elementary’s slogans to promote student leadership. Nolley’s school culture revolves around the Leader in Me program and the concepts and terminology of the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Nolley displays student work exhibiting these habits, with inspiring quotes, and visual academic goal boards. Students are taught to assume leadership in their own learning by creating Wildly Important Goals in their Leadership/Data notebooks. Nolley recognizes students when they achieve their goals. Nolley also recognizes students who exhibit the seven habits through the Leaders of the Month, the Principal’s Award, and/or the Caught Being Good Leaders. The students’ pictures are on display at the school and on the school’s website. The school holds an annual Leadership Day for parents, fellow educators, and community leaders. Students showcase their growth and ownership in academics and their leadership potential. Students serve as greeters, tour guides, speakers, and photographers. This day is a source of pride for students and staff.
