Learning Important Values Everyday

Teaching character is an important part of our philosophy at Tabernacle School.  We emphasize five different character traits in our classrooms:  responsible, respectful, compassionate, cooperative, and courageous.  Teachers recognize students for showing these character traits in the classroom and at quarterly assemblies.  If a student shows exceptional character in one of these areas a teacher will send them to the office for “Caught Being Good”.  There they get a sticker that they proudly display for the rest of the day.  Their name is added to our character bulletin board in the lunchroom and a letter is sent home detailing why they were sent to the office.  Below are some examples of how each character trait is displayed in our students.
