Character Trait for November


The six key character traits are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. We encourage students, staff and parents to incorporate these positive traits into everything they do.

Each month, Pachappa students will be exposed to a new pillar of character.  Students will have the ability to receive a Tiger Tail if the student is observed doing an act of trustworthiness this month in the classroom or on the playground. There will be a drawing at the end of each week for a small prize.

•     Treat others with respect. Follow the Golden Rule.respect

•      Be tolerant of differences. Be kind to all people.

•      Use good manners, use positive language.

•      Be considerate of the feelings of others.

•      Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone.

•     Deal peacefully with anger, insults and disagreements.

 If we can get every Pachappa parent to donate just 1 to 2 hours of their time, we can accomplish wonderful things for our children and our school. We are asking you to help us pave a way for our children, giving them all the resources available to help enrich their minds and bodies. Just 1 or 2 hours a day, week, or month, can make all the difference. 

If you are interested in joining an amazing team, please click here to fill out the form  and return it with your student.
