An elementary school in Bossier City is just one of three schools in the state to receive a special grant. It's from a program called The Leader in Me.
Bellaire Elementary received the grant this year.
The nationwide program focuses on transforming a school by teaching children the "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People."
Teachers actually receive special training to teach those habits to students.
There are reminders of the program posted in the hallway, and the principle says it teaches her students valuable lessons.
"Through these seven habits we believe that if children are taught these values that they will grow up to be productive citizens," says Vicky Birtcher, Principle of Bellaire Elementary.
The learn things like understanding others, working together and sharpening their talents.
