𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 #𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀: REALIZE 2 weeks ago, we set out on a quest in search of the key to becoming great leaders, and we solved the mystery. The first letter from each of the daily habits spells out “FACTOR”- Fearless, Adapt, Care, Talk ‘em up, Original, and Realize. Today is when we REALIZE that we have all the traits necessary to become the “X-FACTOR” and change the world! 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: The Apex leadership lessons finished today and discovered what it means to be the “X-FACTOR”. Awesome job! How can you apply what you’ve learned at home and school to keep being a great leader all year long? #ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

𝗚𝗲𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱𝘆! Our Apex Fun Run event is just around the corner – 03/23/23! 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀: ORIGINAL To be original means you’re the first version! It means you are one of a kind! There is only one YOU, and what you bring to the world matters! 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Help your child think of 5 things that are special or unique about them. What makes them who they are? #ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders
𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀: TALK ‘EM UP When we talk positively about ourselves it can give us the strength to keep going, the strength to overcome challenges we face. Encouraging others and highlighting their strengths can also bring out the best in them! 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Ask your child how it feels when someone pays them a compliment or says something encouraging. Talk about ways that they can also make others feel good about themselves. Discuss words and phrases that can turn negative thoughts around, like instead of saying “I can’t do that,” say “I can’t do that, YET.” Rather than focusing on being smart or good at something, change the focus to how hard they tried or how much they have improved. #ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀: ADAPT To adapt means we are able to adjust to different situations, especially when they’re out of our control! 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Talk with your child about a situation they have gone through that required they adapt or change their behaviors or expectations. Do they sometimes struggle with new experiences? What are some things that will help them adjust and feel more comfortable? #ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗺 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘀 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆. Over the next 2 weeks Apex will take students on a quest in search of the key to becoming great leaders and learn some important habits along the way. We’ll highlight a different leadership habit each day so families can continue the conversation at home. Our first Apex leadership habit is FEARLESS. Being fearless means we’re willing to push ourselves outside of our comfort zone. It means we’re willing to take the first step into the unknown, even if we fail! 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Ask your child if they have ever been afraid to try something new because they thought they wouldn’t be able to do it well. Talk to them about ways to break down a big challenge into smaller pieces so it is easier to overcome. #ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders
