Character Lies Within

Character is defined as the combined moral or ethical structure of an individual. The character education program at Tri-City Elementary is designed to enhance positive character traits instilled in students by their families and the community. Specific character traits emphasized include, but are not limited to, respect, responsibility, integrity, empathy, and cooperation. Interactive classes are offered throughout the year for grades PreK through 5 to provide the opportunity to discuss and learn about the importance of these positive traits. In addition to offered classes, community speakers are utilized to enhance the program. These speakers are provided at no cost to the district and included such topics as hand washing, nutrition, exercise, and positive choices.
