Principal’s Message

Steve Potter

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! At Green Tree East Leadership Academy we cultivate a sincere desire to help every student and colleague to be better than they were yesterday. Our parents send us the best kids they’ve got – our job is to happily return them at the end of each day with:

  • Their BRAINS a little HEAVIER

  • Their TUMMIES a little FULLER

  • Their MUSCLES a little STRONGER

  • Their HEARTS a little LIGHTER


Through our school focus on Leadership we nurture each student in the 8 HABITS OF LEADERS:

1. BE PROACTIVE - I have a “CAN DO “attitude, make good decisions and do the right things even when no one is looking

2. BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND - I plan ahead and set goals

3. PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST - I spend time on things that are most important first

4. THINK WIN-WIN - I want everyone to be a success

5. SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD - I listen to other’s ideas and feel-ings without interrupting

6. SYNERGIZE - I get along well with others, even people who are different than me—Together is better!

7. SHARPEN THE SAW - I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep

8. FIND YOUR VOICE AND INSPIRE OTHERS TO FIND THEIRS - I use my talents and excitement to make a difference in the world 

We look forward to partnering with you to help your student be better than they were yesterday!

Sincerely, 
Steve Potter
