Windsor Elementary believes that a well-rounded education includes not only an academic education, but a character one as well. Each month our students will learn about a different character trait and how to apply the trait to their own lives.
The link below provides you access to a variety of resources we put together to help you lead your child’s character development. While we have reviewed the items prior to adding them, we cannot be held responsible if there is an inappropriate pop-up or link posted in comments or sidebar.
This school year we will be focusing on implementing Class Meetings and NESTS (Nurturing, Educating, Supporting, and Teaching Students) at WE. These will serve to help students feel a part of our community here and to develop relationships that can assist them with anything they need. Windsor Elementary students are also learning about character goal-setting. More information about Class Meetings and Families (NESTS) can be found in the link below.
The character traits that Windsor Elementary students will focus on include:
Courage: being brave or bold
Respect: showing consideration for self, others, rules and authority
Responsibility: being accountable for your own choices and behaviors
Cooperation: working together toward a common goal
Leadership: helping others despite the challenges grinch-home-hoot
Perseverance: striving to accomplish a goal
Kindness: showing sympathy for a person who is suffering or distressed in some way
Honesty: being truthful to others and self
Accountability: being responsible for your own actions
Self-Discipline: managing your behavior in a positive way
Be sure to check your child’s folder at the end of each month for the Positive Behavior Support/Character Education Conversation Calendar, which will encourage daily conversation about the monthly character trait.
Below is our Service Learning Calendar for the 2019-2020 school year.
