Harper for Kids Youth Character Development Program
Miguel Hidalgo Elementary School is proud to partner with Harper for Kids to teach our students important character traits from legendary UCLA Coach John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success and his definition of success for children which is: “Success is happiness in your heart because you made the effort, 100%, to do your best!”
Coach Wooden believed and taught that the most important responsibility
each of us had to ourselves was to do everything we could to achieve our
own potential. He offered his Pyramid of Success and his definition of
Success as a guide, stepping stones to help
young people understand what it really takes to make the effort – 100% –
to fulfill their potential and do their best.
Each month, Miguel Hidalgo
School will highlight and focus on 1-2 of the fifteen building blocks
of success illustrated in Coach Wooden’s children’s motivational book, Inch
and Miles: The Journey to Success.
Many of our positive behavior support programs will revolve around the
principles taught in this inspiring children's book. These efforts
a pyramid of success and shapes students into their personal best.
