Character Trait of the Month - Fairness

Every month throughout the School Year our students at Loudenslager Elementary School will study a specific character trait as part of our school wide Character Counts Program.

The Character Counts Trait of the Month for January is FAIRNESS!

Throughout the month of December our students will have lessons about Citizenship embedded in their regular classroom instruction, will participate a Character Counts Assembly on Thursday January 12th and will be asked to wear ORANGE on as part of our monthly Character Color Day Program!

We are extremely excited to begin our Character Counts Program this school year, and encourage parents to contact our School Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Marcelina Guzman for any additional information regarding this program!

Loudenslager One World Festival

Loudenslager is proud to announce the return of our One World Festival, which will take place on Friday January 20, 2023. As part of this program students will be researching various aspects of their assigned country and will create a presentation to be displayed at our Festival. This work will be completed during Technology and STEAM Classes starting in December.

On the date of the festival we will decorate the Loudenslager All-Purpose Room with the presentations and each class will have the opportunity to visit and see the projects completed by the other classrooms.

We are excited to resume this fun and educational Loudenslager Tradition this year. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Loudenslager STEAM Teacher, Rebecca Richardson at rrichard@paulsboro.k12.nj.us.
