In an effort to promote positive interpersonal relationship skills , IS 24 Myra S. Barnes has created a Student Leadership Team by using the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" as its guiding framework. The goal is to help students gain confidence in their ability to be proactive, effectively plan, and put important things first, such as how to get along with and respect others. Students are learning how to have a win-win attitude and be more effective listeners, which will help them value others from diverse backgrounds. The principles being reinforced are to respect yourself and others from all backgrounds because everyone has something positive to offer.
