Character Education in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is a partnership with parents and the community to foster honest, responsible and caring students. It is an intentional and proactive effort to help students understand, care about, and act upon basic values that we all share. Character Education promotes a positive school climate where students are more polite, honest and respectful, enhances student achievement by improving school attendance and reducing classroom conflicts, and encourages community involvement and a lifelong commitment to helping others.
We are excited to announce that Endhaven will be incorporating the Boosterthon Character building traits into the Character Education program this year:
Win with Teamwork
Live with Curiosity
Score with Practice
Play with Humility
Ride with Confidence
Run with Endurance
Lessons are provided once per month by the class volunteer with additional time through the classroom teacher and guidance counselor, Erika Clarke. For each Character Trait, Karrie Fuentes, has created lessons for the volunteers that also includes books you can read to the class. The volunteer and classroom teacher will coordinate the day and time for the lesson each month.
Thank you for taking on the role as Character Ed volunteer in one of our Endhaven Classrooms.
