Character Tree Traits in Action
Fifth grade student, Jacob Robbins exemplifies the Character Tree word Responsibility in his work as a Safety Assistant in the back carpool. Each day at dismissal he counts to see how many children he can open and close car doors for. He is always friendly and courteous. Jacob takes his Safety Assistant job seriously and is eager to help others.
Third grade student Addie Paradise showed Compassion towards another student who was going to be late for dismissal last week. Without being asked, she took out her friend’s assignment notebook and started copying all of her assignments down off of the board for her. She gathered her friend’s homework folders, jacket, and put up her chair. Addie not only demonstrates Responsibility by always getting prepared for our end of day routine, but on this occasion she also showed Compassion for a friend in need of a helping hand.
Second grader Jacob Margraf shows Responsibility just about every day when he helps Mrs. Keane clean up the classroom. He is usually the last one out the door at the end of the day because he picks up papers and pencils off of the floor and makes sure all the chairs are put up for his teacher and classmates.He was never asked do this; he just started doing it one day on his own. Way to go, Jacob!
We are also very proud of Kindergarten student, Keira Segars who demonstrates Responsibility everyday. She completes all of her assignments, stays on task, and follows the Honor Code daily. We are proud of you, Keira!
