Character Counts!

Starting each day with a simple character-building reminder through morning announcements sets a positive and productive tone for the entire day.  Teachers follow through with character concepts and monthly activities are planned during each class's library time.  Each class participates in a hands-on, fun, and lasting lesson that incorporates each of the Six Pillars of Character.

Each Monday, students and teachers wear the color of the Pillar for the current six weeks.  Our school comes together to stand behind what true character means!

  • 1st Six Weeks--Trustworthiness--Blue
  • 2nd Six Weeks--Respect--Yellow
  • 3rd Six Weeks--Responsibility--Green
  • 4th Six Weeks--Fairness--Orange
  • 5th Six Weeks--Caring--Red
  • 6th Six Weeks--Citizenship--Purple


At HOW-ville, we encourage opportunities for students to use and build on each of these skills.  Each six weeks we will recognize students who exhibited these skills and made an impact on other learners.  Look for more information as the school year begins and use every opportunity to implement these same concepts in your home.  

--Looking forward to a great year!
