Character in Motion
Throughout the course of the school year, we will be featuring pictures and stories of students, faculty, staff, parents, families and members of the community as they are “caught in the act of displaying their highest and best character”. The energy that is produced by the flutter of the wings of a sole butterfly can travel around the globe. Imagine the energy that our actions of exemplary character can do to create a climate of positive change not only within our schools, homes and community, but also as it moves around the world!
