CHARACTER STRONG!

Students have been engaging in discussions and activities surrounding character traits like commitment, kindness, patience, and others. They are challenged with "character dares" each week to help stretch their understanding of the trait and put it into action.


Check out this "family dare" and see how you do (just click on the picture and it will enlarge)!


Don't forget to tweet out your experience and tag us @BearBranchInt and Character Strong @careacter.
