Are you new to Cerritos?

Welcome to Cerritos!


Thank you for making Cerritos your school of choice; you are now officially Cerritos Roadrunner and part of a wonderful community of leaders.  As a Leader in Me School, our families discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey’s book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”. The 7 Habits are:  Be Proactive, Begin With the End in Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood, Synergize and Sharpen the Saw.


Now that you have completed registration it is time to Put First Things First - the Habit of Personal Management.  Stephen Covey says, “If you were to ask me what single practice would do more to balance your life and increase your productivity than any other, it would be this: plan your week each week before the week begins.”
