Colts with Character

This year Edgewood Junior High adopted the Colts with Character program. Each month, the entire school population focuses on three defined “Lifelines,” Each one instilling a quality or trait that each student should practice and demonstrate in their pursuit of becoming a valuable member of society.

Anytime a teacher or staff member sees a student displaying one of our lifelines, they receive a ticket to turn into the guidance office. Twice a month two names will be drawn per grade level and the students will be called down to the office for their prize. The non-winning tickets will be dumped into a larger container for some school wide drawings at the end of each semester.

Previous lifelines we’ve had this year have been:

Integrity- To tell the truth and do what is right even when no one is looking.

Organization- To plan, arrange and keep things in order.

Responsibility- To be accountable for your actions.

Effort- To work hard.

Empathy- To understand and experience the feelings of others.

Active listening- To use your ears, eyes, heart and undivided attention when needed.

For the month of November we will be focusing on Gratitude, Problem solving and manners. Gratitude means to be thankful, Problem Solving is to create solutions, and Manners is using proper social skills in different situations. Gratitude and Manners are especially timely during this time of year with Thanksgiving right around the corner and being good at solving problems is useful at all points and times in school and in life.
