STURGIS – Eastwood School has earned a special designation.
Eastwood has been named a Lighthouse School. This goes in correlation with Eastwood being a Leader In Me School. The school, and others in the district have adopted the Steven Covey “Seven Habits” program and are teaching those principals to their students.
Eastwood Principal Mike Miller says on June 3, representatives from Franklin Covey came and did an interview with students, faculty and parent's groups to see if the school could become a Lighthouse School. Last week, Miller says they learned they received the Lighthouse designation, which is big for the District and the building”
Miller says this is a special designation for Eastwood. Worldwide there are 5,000 Leader In Me schools. Only 512 schools around the world have been given the Lighthouse status. In Michigan, Eastwood is 1 of 29 Lighthouse Schools.
During Monday's Sturgis Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Art Ebert told the Board about Eastwood being named a Lighthouse School. He says this is a two year designation for Eastwood and that they can re-apply for the certification in 2021.
