Character Education


Southern Elementary participates in the Character Education Program .

Every month teachers and staff nominate students and adults from our school, whom they feel represents the Character word of that month.
The Character team, consisting of staff that represent all grades and various positions within the school, meets monthly and they choose a student from each grade level as the grade representative, an overall student winner and adult winner.
Students and adults are recognized at the Awards Ceremony celebrations that are scheduled several times during the school year. 
All winning students will receive a certificate. The overall student winner will also receive a bumper sticker.

Pictures of the Grade Representatives, Overall Student winner and Adult winner are posted on the character education bulletin board in the school’s reception area.
