Character Education

About the Character EducationStudents holding responsibility poster

EBS was founded on the philosophy of educating the whole child's heart and mind.

The idea behind this program is that character education is as important as academic education. It takes a strong partnership of parents, teachers, administrators, and children working together to develop children who show: Responsibility, Generosity, Gratitude, Respect, Forgiveness, Honesty,
Compassion, Cooperation, Perseverance, Resilience and Loyalty.

Throughout the year we celebrate a character trait:
• October--Cooperation
• November--Responsibility
• January--Forgiveness
• March--Honesty
• May—Perseverance/Resilience

Volunteers access our EBS Character Education website, which has easy-tofollow lesson plans. Volunteers spend about 30 minutes per month in the
classroom leading a discussion, reading a book, role playing, or even doing
skits and puppet shows that relate to each month's character trait. Each
classroom needs one or two volunteers, as this is a job that can be shared.

The EBS Character Education program holds an annual Fall Food Drive,
participates in Crayola’s ColorCycle National Program, and partners with nonprofit charities.
