Character Education


Character Education at Van Cleve

      “Educating the mind and heart within all our students”

In collaboration with the staff, community, and students, we have implemented Character Education here at Van Cleve. 

Each month features a new character trait.  Some of the featured traits include: respect, responsibilitiy, integrity, cooperation, kindness, and perseverance.  

Students have the opportunity to learn about character traits through daily announcements, videos, classroom instruction and large group presentations.  When a staff member observes a student performing a positive act, the student may get "ticketed."  One portion of the ticket will go home, the other into a weekly drawing (on Friday) for a prize to take home.  One prize will be awarded weekly.

We look forward to this program, and the positive impact it will have on our building.
