Our Character Colors

We're gearing up for Red Ribbon Week & National Character Counts! Week October 21st through the 26th and I can't wait. A few years back, we used Color The World With Character as our theme. We got parents involved by asking them how their child colors the world with character; click {here} to download the handout that we sent home and {here} to see the version we posted at the Character Counts! website.
Here are a few examples of our many awesome responses.







Some parents used real photographs, and those were adorable, too. Students shared them with their classmates in morning meetings.
Each teacher sent a few for this cafeteria display; 
the rest were posted in the classrooms.


How do you encourage children to 
color the world with character?
