Bear Exploration Center

for Math, Science, and Technology

Project: Clothespin Project
The Clothespin Project was designed to help students recognize elements of prejudice in everyday life and think of ways to fight against intolerance and discrimination. The project also leads to discussions about the importance of learning that every person in this world is important, regardless of what meets the eye. It inspires and empowers students to become not only socially aware, but also socially active.  


Cordova Elementary School

Cordova, Alabama

Project: Careers with Character

School Career Days are excellent times to invite speakers from your community to inspire students! Why not inspire them by showing them how character traits are used on the job? Speakers were invited to present their careers and show practical application of character traits that often attribute to success in their chosen field.


Vaughn Road Elementary School
Montgomery, Alabama
Project: Promoting Service Learning Through Gardening
This project is dedicated to teaching students about ecology and conservation. We have chosen to dedicate the entire week to campus beautification. Service learning has played a great role in teaching children to give back. This campus beautification project will allow them to have a hand in creating an aesthetically pleasing learning environment. Pine straw, bedding plants, and fertilizer will be purchased from Lowe’s Home Building and used to beautify our school’s campus.

Character@HEART and Character.org are proud to recognize Cordova Elementary School as a school that has demonstrated its use of character development to drive positive impacts in academics, student behavior, and their school’s climate. We thank Superintendent Jason Adkins, District Character Education Coordinator Mary Slaughter, Principal Diane Williams, Counselor Sandra Courington, staff and students of Cordova Elementary for

your commitment to implementing a quality character education initiative and helping develop good character in Alabama’s youth.



Schools and districts that are recognized for reaching a standard of excellence at the state level are named State Schools of Character (for three years) and their applications are sent to CEP for evaluation at the national level. If they are again determined to have met a standard of excellence, they are named National Schools of Character (for five years). These schools become part of a national network of schools of character that serve as models and mentors to other educators.

 

 National Schools of Character

Become a National School of Character! National Schools of Character are schools, early childhood through high school, and districts that have demonstrated through a rigorous evaluation process that character development has had a positive impact on academics, student behavior, and school climate. They are now expected to serve as models for other schools, helping them to achieve the same results. They will enjoy the distinction of a National School of Character for 5 years.
