The Riverside Way - Character Education
February's trait will be HONESTY. Throughout each month, students will be able to earn "Caught Ya's" from any staff member for displaying one of the seven Riverside Character Traits. These "Caught Ya's" will be displayed on a bulletin board and then entered for a monthly drawing. In addition, each teacher is going to select two students that most frequently demonstrated the character trait of the month. These students will be given an award at a monthly assembly! Parents, please team with us to promote character education! We are excited to grow young adults that have the CHARACTER that we want and appreciate! Check out the "Caught Ya" to see the other traits!
