Character Education Student Recognition Program

The Tooker Avenue Character Education Program is something that we take very seriously at our school. It is our goal for all of the students to exhibit good character on a daily basis. We start off each morning with an
inspirational/thought-provoking message that the principal reads over the PA system. This message is created by Project Wisdom and is designed to help our students learn to make better choices in their daily lives, and also to treat others with respect. We focus on one theme per month, and they are listed below:

*September - Responsibility
*October - Trustworthiness
*November - Citizenship
*December - Caring
*January - Fairness
*February - Respect
*March - Respect
*April - Trustworthiness
*May - Caring
*June - Citizenship

This year, we will be presenting a Character Education award to one member of each class at the Tooker Avenue School. This award will be given out each month at our PTA meetings. Students receive this award based on nominations they get from staff members in the building. Any staff member who works in our school can nominate a student. In 4th and 5th grade, the students are also allowed to make nominations for their classmates.

It is our hope that this program will raise awareness about Character Education in our school and greatly reduce the incidents of bullying and/or harassment. We simply do not tolerate these types of behaviors at Tooker, and to accomplish this we need the support of all students, parents, and staff.
