Character Education Shines at Dogwood

Character Education Shines at Dogwood thumbnail121092

The fifth grade classes at Dogwood Elementary School participated in an interactive play that taught the character education traits of tolerance, respect and responsibility to their younger classmates. Students were asked to “turn and talk” to decide whether the actors exemplified the traits they were trying to show. The fifth grade students really conveyed the messages well as the younger students were able to share what they learned such as “be kind,” “don’t think you are better than others,” “be inclusive,” “be responsible without being asked” and “show everyone respect, always.” The fifth grade students felt empowered as leaders of the school by being able to impart these valuable lessons.
