The Lighthouse Team

The Lighthouse Team's role is to encourage, lead, and serve as a resource for teachers at Murdock in teaching our students the 7 Habits from The Leader In Me (LIM).

2016-2017 Q3 Update

  • Student Leaderships Nights are starting- each grade level presents the 7 Habits to parents and each child shares their Leadership Notebooks.
  • School-wide Book Character/Parade Celebration- Students and Staff participated in dressing up as their favorite book character that tied to one of the 7 Habits. Students and staff participated in a parade to highlight the costumes.  Classroom teachers and administration decorated their doors with their favorite book and the Habit that it represents.
