Kids with Character has been a long-standing tradition here at SCCS and this year will be no exception. The elementary teachers look forward each month to giving a student in their class the character trait that has been implemented into their academics each day. It is not always an easy decision to come to as we have wonderful students and families at our school. The teachers look and watch for a student who shows these traits naturally in their classrooms, on the playground, how they interact with their friends, or growth is seen in this area. It is our joy to come alongside you as parents to train and equip our students with these traits that will go with them beyond elementary school.
You may find that you will get a secret email letting you know your child has been chosen for the trait that month. We try to keep it a secret so they will be surprised at chapel. We love having you come to all our chapels but especially this one to see your child honored. To make the day extra special those students get to have lunch with Mr. Kennedy and Mrs. Preheim.
