Character Education at School 3
 This year at School 3, we will be focusing on Character Education.  Each month we will have a different theme.  The themes are as follows:

September:  Responsibility
October:  Respect
November:  Gratitude
December:  Peace
January:  Commitment
February:  Kindness
March:  Honesty
April:  Creativity
May:  Freedom
June:  Perserverance

Students "caught" exhibiting these characteristics during each month will be given a certificate which will be displayed on our character education bulletin board.  We will also be conducting awards assemblies throughout the year to honor students exhibiting good character.

Additionally, we are trying to get more student involved in performing service to the school and engaging in school activities.  Students will be chosen to do morning announcements and sing the national anthem each morning.  We have also formed school service squads to help out with our younger children during lunch and with peer mediation activities.

We hope that you will support and reinforce these themes at home, as we continue to build character and service at school.


Sincerely,

Jay Berman
