         Character Education has always been a part of the Clinton Public School experience.  As is written, "The mission of Clinton Public School is to inspire our students to become contributing members of society who are independent, innovative, life-time learners equipped with the necessary skills to meet the demands of our ever-changing world."  Character Education fosters these skills building on and supporting the seeds you, the parents, have planted.
         This year at Clinton Public School, we are continuing our Character Education program.  Each month we will be promoting a positive character trait through classroom activities, inspirational bulletin boards, announcements, themed weeks, and incorporating all the wonderful lessons that are being taught at each grade level. 
         Here is an outline of the traits we will be focusing on throughout the school year:
                                                                                       September/October-Citizenship
November/December-Caring
January/February-Respect
March-Responsibility
April-Fairness
May/June-Trustworthiness
In addition, as students are "caught in the act" of demonstrating a positive character trait, they will receive a Good Character Award. We hope that you will join us in promoting the monthly character traits.  You may visit the Clinton Public School website for a list of resources and suggested activities for you and your family to work on together.
