As a part of Northside Elementary School’s Positive Behavior Initiative Support program, two students per class in grades kindergarten through 5th grade are recognized each month for displaying the character trait of the month.
They are provided a seasonal cutout to display on the character tree. The character word and their name will be written on the cutout. The students are also recognized over the intercom and with a group picture in front of the “character tree.”
January’s character word was “sharing.”

LEA’s from across the state were invited to attend the training and approximately 50 educators and administrators attended the training.
