Virtue Program

Character, Virtures, & Citizenship—Respect, heroism, self-discipline, gratitude, generosity, courage, justice, compassion, courtesy, and hope (our virtures for the year), and the meaning of citizenship are taught through the use of the Core Virtues program. The Core Virtures program is a literature based method of teaching civic virtures. Teachers set examples for students and teach them through acknowledgment, praise, and role playing. Respect for personal and public property is taught by stressing respect rather than fear of punishment.
