Character Honor Roll


Our fourth and fifth grade campus is reviving our Character Honor Roll. Yay! We know that get more of what we focus on, so I'm hopeful that this incentive project will make a positive difference with our oldest learners.



As faculty and staff catch someone doing something TeRRiFCC, they tear off a yellow slip from their pad, complete it and give it to the student(s). 
Eventually these slips will make their way into this bin.


Names from the bin will be read at lunch every other Friday to publicly recognize students who are living life guided by our six pillars of character - 
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. 
Recognized students will then be added to our 
Character Honor Roll Wall of Fame. 

I know that one of my second graders wishes he were already eligible for that Honor Roll because after the new initiative was announced at our morning community gathering, he wanted to nominate himself for one of those golden tickets. He told me that when his friend Carson got hurt in P.E. class, he wrote him a nice note and gave him some money so now Carson has enough money to buy a hamster. Sure enough, Carson had some change in his hand, so I asked how much he'd gotten, to which he answered, "I think it's 26 cents!" 
Oh, to be back in second grade and be the recipient of his thoughtfulness.

Anyway, click the link to listen to The Character Road, a song I wrote for these character kids when they were still at our Westwood campus. I can't wait to see the amazing teenagers these leaders will become and TeRRiFiCC things they'll do as they follow the character road.
