Character Education Counts!

October 21-27 is National Character Counts Week

This is a fantastic time to increase our awareness of best practices for developing positive relationships and  promoting a positive school culture.

During our annual CAMLE Schools to Watch Conference, held on Saturday, November 3, Russell Middle School will be presenting a session on Unleashing Student Performance by Improving Attitude and EffortRussell Middle School was designated as a National School of Character in 2012.

According to the Character Education Partnership, comprehensive Character Education addresses many tough issues in education while developing a positive school climate. Schools that focus on character are able to transform their school cultures, reduce discipline referrals, increase academic achievement for all learners, develop global citizens, and improve job satisfaction and retention among teachers. Character education includes a broad range of educational approaches such as whole child education, service learning, social-emotional learning, and civic education. All share the goal of  helping young people become responsible, caring, and contributing citizens.
