Roosevelt Elementary Chosen As State School of Character
Jeffrey Neighbors

by Jeffrey Neighbors

For the last decade, Roosevelt Elementary has upheld the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” with such a high emphasis on leadership, integrity, and proactivity that they have been able to achieve status as a State School of Character (SOC) in addition to being the first Lighthouse school in Oklahoma. This new status also makes Pryor the first school district in Oklahoma to have all of its schools recognized as SOCs. To be considered for the list of 2019 SOCs, Roosevelt had to submit an application to with criteria such as level of involvement, uniqueness, significant impact, and transferability along with other requirements.

The process for Roosevelt to achieve status as a SOC involved changing vocabulary to involve more character words like prioritize, proactive, and synergetic. While the Leader In Me program was implemented by faculty and administration, it is perpetuated by learners who are given opportunities to be leaders such as leading assemblies, organizing the library, and doing morning announcements. The lessons learners are given in leadership teach them to be uplifting and encouraging to other students, even if they are “different.”

Courtney Rehbein, first grade teacher at Roosevelt, said “It’s a very student-lead school. I think we provide a good foundation for them to build from with whatever leadership opportunities they may find.”

Rehbein, also a parent of students at Roosevelt, says “It’s comforting that they’re in a loving and supportive environment.”

The process for Roosevelt to become a SOC has involved yearly training, visits from Lighthouse Coordinators, and cooperation with all grade levels. In the wake of being recognized as a SOC, Roosevelt is waiting until May to find out if it will be selected as a National School of Character

Schools of Character
Roosevelt Elementary has been added to the list of 2019 State Schools of Character (SOC). The addition of Roosevelt means that Pryor Public Schools becomes the first district in Oklahoma to have all of its schools recognized as State Schools of Character. The district will find out in May if Roosevelt joins the other schools in being named a National SOC.
