Wildly Important Goals (WIGS) Ensure Student Success

225

Goal setting is a powerful behavior that yields results. As part of a Stephen Covey Seven Habits Leader in Me school district, we see children as young as four or five achieve goals in literacy, math, attendance, behavior, and leadership.

Our students are excited to share their Wildly Import Goals with others. Students are taught how to set smaller goals in order to achieve the larger WIG goal. When a WIG is broken into smaller strategies, students can see their progress along the way and it ensures their success in the long run. Our students track their WIG progress on compelling individual scoreboards. Students serve as accountability partners with their peers. Together they celebrate the milestones of goal accomplishment, not just the finish line.
