Ross Elementary Named 2011 Missouri School of Character
Congratulations to the staff and students of Ross Elementary for being named a "2011 Missouri State School of Character" by the Character Education Partnership! Ross will also be in consideration for the National School of Character program.
Schools that apply for the award are judged on their ability to demonstrate every aspect of the Eleven Principles of Character Education, from shared moral leadership to challenging academics that engage all learners to a truly caring school community.
Later this spring, Ross will have an assembly at which they will be presented with an official banner. They will also be honored at the Characterplus Character Education Conference in June.
