“Trait of the Month”
Character education is a districtwide emphasis on those values held to be important by the Conestoga Valley community.
Each month has a character education trait as a theme of the month.
Parents are encouraged to discuss these traits with their children and to use everyday examples to reinforce them. Parents and local community leaders are encouraged to download and print the poster found at the bottom of this page and hang it up in a visible area.
