“Empowering Learners to Lead for Life!”
Welcome to Edgar Murray Elementary, a school that promotes success for all children. At Murray, your child will have the opportunity to experience learning under the guidance of caring and dedicated staff members who strive to meet the individual learning needs of each student. With the assistance and support of our parents and the St. Clair community, it is our goal to promote the achievement of all students.
Edgar Murray Elementary is proud to be a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. We were named the prestigious Lighthouse Status in May 2017.
The Leader In Me is a framework for creating a positive school culture which focuses on leadership and personal responsibility. It is based on teaching children the timeless principles of success from Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. We know there are common features that unite truly successful people and that set them apart from people who are not successful. By teaching children from an early age to be leaders of their own lives and that they are responsible for determining their effectiveness as students and people, we will be providing our children with the mindset and skill set needed to be successful in our ever-changing society. Through the use of The Leader In Me, students will develop a common vocabulary and set of expectations that will set them on the path to success.
