Focus on Character Education

Kelly VanWinkle

Character Education is an integral part of the education students receive at Centerville-Abington Elementary School.  Our staff believes in teaching character by example as well as using structured events such as school convocations to teach character traits.  The character traits we focus on include:  responsibility, effort, perseverance, motivation, confidence, teamwork, problem solving, caring and common sense.  The Lifelong Guidelines we encourage are:  trustworthiness, truthfulness, personal best, active listening and "no putdowns."  Students are recognized and rewarded for their good character at monthly convocations and during morning announcements.  Teachers choose one student each month who has demonstrated good character as their "Student of the Month."
