The Upper Elementary students all received Character Award Certificates. The students studied character traits and virtues throughout the year in their weekly “Gifts and Challenges” classes. They worked on topics such as patience, courtesy, gratitude, perseverance, responsibility and leadership. Each student chose a character trait to reflect on for the year and wrote an essay on the topic. Two 3rd year students, Connor and Zarah, read their essays on leadership to the audience. After the speeches Mia and Kimberly read the book “What if Everybody Did That” to the Lower Elementary students.
After the ceremony the students were treated to a special lunch and the third year students gave personal acknowledgments to the younger students.
