SCHOOL WIDE CHARACTER EDUCATION School wide character education is an integral part of the School Counseling program at SHMS. Classroom visits focus on topics dealing with personal/social, career, and academic matters. Lessons support the building-wide character education program and encourage positive core values and traits including, but not limited to, fairness, responsibility, citizenship, trustworthiness, caring, and respectfulness. We will celebrate the traits on the following months:
August – Respect/Growth-mindset September – Responsibility (Suicide Prevention) October – Courage (Bully Prevention/Drug Awareness) November – Citizenship/Gratitude December – Caring/Compassion/Empathy January – Fairness/Tolerance/Forgiveness/Diversity February – Self-Control/Trustworthy/Integrity March – Honesty (Test Anxiety) April – Perseverance/Grit (Abuse Prevention Month) May – Self Advocacy/Cooperation
During the 2017-18 school year, the school counseor will visit each classroom once during the months of September, October, November, January, and March. During these lessons, classes will discuss various character traits or teacher-requested topics that coincide with the lessons presented in the school wide character education
