• At Rock Spring, we believe strongly in character education as a way to help instill vital skills to our students.  We have chosen to make our character education program reflect growth mindset tenets such as cooperation, determination, perseverance, and courage.  Each month, students from each classroom will be chosen by their teacher as best reflecting these character education concepts.  Those students will be honored with a breakfast hosted by the school where they will receive a certificate.

     

    The character education concepts that will be taught as well as the months that they are focused on are as follows:
