We are utilizing the 
Formative Five  by Thomas R. Hoerr to guide our character education program this year. This program is centered upon the belief that, "Who you are is more important than what you know." We will be focusing on the following character traits:


Empathy
Self-Control
Grit
Integrity


In January, we recognized students in each class who display empathy. Teachers have been teaching lessons on empathy in their classrooms and Mrs. Bill's counseling lessons have focused on this trait.

The next trait is self-control. Self control is one’s ability to modulate one’s own actions and delay gratification. Helping students to set goals and to be mindful of their current actions and the implications for their future can help them develop self-controlAt the January assembly, the students learned some strategies for displaying self-control:


1. Before you Speak, THINK - Is it True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary, or Kind?
2. KHFOOTY - Keep your Hands, Feet and Other Objects To Yourself
 3. Stop - Think - Consider


In March, we recognized students who display self-control. We also began discussing integrity and watched a video by Kid President and a skit performed by some 5th grade students. Integrity is shown by:
Courage...To stand up for what is right
Honesty...In our actions and words
Respect...Doing the right thing even when no one is watching

Congrats to all of our character kids!
