Character Education

Echo Lake Elementary School Character Education Program consists of 10 character traits that we focus on throughout the school year.  Classroom lessons teach students about the character traits.

Character Education is an important part of a child’s education and of the counseling curriculum.  Students are recognized each month when their teachers notice them showing a particular positive characteristic and will receive a spirit stick and their name posted on our walls! 🙂

“We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”
