Character Traits

2020-2021



August -- Respect

September -- Responsibility

October -- Cooperation

November & December -- Compassion

January -- Creativity

February -- Kindness

March -- Fairness

April -- Resilience

May -- Citizenship


Mundy Mill will focus on character development throughout the year with a specific focus each month. Teachers will receive guidance each month on teaching the character trait, some keywords to use, proficiency indicators, and links for lessons, videos, and activities. At the end of the month, two students from each class who exemplify that trait will be recognized with a certificate and have their names announced during the morning announcements. Teachers nominate students for the leader of that trait based on a set of proficiency indicators and a rubric.
