  Blair Oaks Elementary CHARACTERplus

 

The mission of CHARACTERplus is to advance the cause and importance of character education and to sustain its impact on the lives of educators and students.

CHARACTERplus is the first county wide initiative to develop character education in every school in Cole County and is dependent upon the participation of all members of our community. The program was started in 1988 by a concerned group of educators, parents and business leaders who decided that something had to be done about the deterioration of basic values. The initiative begins by our community voting on 12 character traits. These community values are prominently placed on banners in every school each month of the year and teachers educate on the importance of that months value in their classroom.
