Character Education - Courage

      Character education is a strong component of our program and is integrated across the curriculum. Each month a new character trait is introduced. Courage was the character trait for the month of March. On Thursday, March 29, 2012, Officer Andrew M. Kenyi of the Danville Police Department addressed the topic of courage with the students. He explained that it takes courage to stand up for the right thing even if it means losing friends. He talked about the courage needed for various occupations such as being a policeman, firefighter, soldier, etc. Finally, Officer Kenyi told the students that it takes courage to go to school every day, work hard and do your best. At the end of the presentation the students asked Officer Kenyi questions about his career. Additionally, five students were awarded certificates for exemplifying the character trait throughout the month.
