 Cottondale is a 7 Habits School!
Here are the terms and definitions to what we believe!
  • Habit 1: Be Proactive - I have a "Can Do" attitude and always try my best at everything I do.
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind: I plan ahead and set goals for myself.
  •  Habit 3: Put First Things First: I do things I have to do before the things I want to do.
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win - I am a problem solver when an issue comes up with another person and I think about what others want and not just what I want.
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood - I listen to others without interrupting.
  • Habit 6: Synergize - I get along well with others and work good in groups.
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw - I take care of my body by exercising, eating right and getting enough sleep.
