2017/18 William Penn Character Trait Program

What is the “Character Counts” Character Education Program?

William Penn Elementary School launched its “Character Counts” character education program during the 2016/17 school year.  The goal of this program is to teach children about important character traits and help them build “soft skills”.  Throughout the month, as teachers reinforce the importance of this trait, students will be given that animal cutout when they are caught demonstrating this trait. Then, the students will be invited to add their animals to the “Wild About Character” wall in the hallway. In addition, we will hold a Character Trait Day each month when students are encouraged to wear that specific color to school to highlight the importance of showing character. The featured word will be displayed on our school’s marquee and on classroom posters. Mrs. Carter will add to the excitement as she reads a Character Tip of the Day each morning on our school announcements. This provides students with a different, child-friendly example of how they can show/practice this trait during their day.  As a school community, it is our goal to help our students to understand and to demonstrate that their character really does count.
