Character Counts!

Each month we recognize behavior at school and choose a Character Counts trait pillar to honor and discuss. Each trait is symbolized by a color. We choose to wear that color on Fridays as part of a show of school spirit. The following chart shows the Character Counts trait and its month along with its color!

 

October- respect=yellow

November- citizenship=purplePillars.jpeg

December- loyalty= pink

January- perseverance= light blue

February- caring= red

March-Trustworthiness= blue

April- Fairness=orange

May- honesty= white

June- courage=lavender

Grade Level Recycle Program

BENEDICT GRADE LEVEL RECYCLE PROGRAM EVERY THURSDAY MORNING - 07:30 am – 07:50 am

We will be collecting plastic bottles and aluminum cans, that have the CA CRV or CA CASH label on them at a convenient drive-thru drop off location in the parking lot (we cannot recycle any glass containers).

Please have the grade level legibly noted on the outside of every bag. Grade level pound totals are tallied by our volunteer recycle team and announced. Don’t forget to bring in your newspapers, too!
