CHARACTER & PEACE EDUCATION

Main Content

Character Education

At BCMA each month we focus on a selected character trait. These traits are to help our students become well rounded citizens of our community and world. Each month we celebrate the traits in our rooms by reading related stories, completing writing prompts, having guest speakers, and using them in our everyday vocabulary. Some of our traits include; respect, responsibility, integrity and compassion.

During the month of December our school celebrated compassion. Each class chose a community service project. One of our pre-primary rooms sang Christmas carols at a nursing home, another created get well baskets for children in the hospital during the holiday season, and another created cards and visited a nursing home.

At BCMA, compassion doesn’t stop there. We pride ourselves on being active members of our community. Our middle school students have hosted a food drive for an animal rescue organization, we have raised money for a local soup kitchen, and all of the teachers donated their time at the soup kitchen prior to the school year starting. We are also hoping with our school gardens this summer to donate fresh produce.

Peace Education

In conjunction with our character education program, we introduce and teach peace education in all of our classrooms. We give our students the tools to use their words and communicate when they are feeling sad, mad, or frustrated. In every classroom there is a “peace corner”. In this “corner” there is a peace rose or peace objects that students can use as a talking stick and other objects to help the student take a few minutes to regain their confidence and composure so they can be successful in the classroom. We strive to teach every student how to be a positive role model and also teach them of past famous role models.
