Both last year and this year, the Village School staff has been giving out character trait awards to our students. Each month, we announce a character trait of the month and the staff members watch their students closely to see who epitomizes that month's trait in their respective classes. Recipients are awarded a certificate and have their photo taken and posted on our character trait wall for the month. We kicked off November as kindness month with our annual Operation Sweet Tooth, which is certainly an opportunity for all of our children to start the month by demonstrating their kindness for those less fortunate than themselves. Thank you to all of our families that contributed to this year's Operation Sweet Tooth and we certainly look forward to sharing additional kindness opportunities throughout the month, on a daily basis and at events such as the Thanksgiving Feast, on Tuesday, November 26th.
