Character Kids Program

Character Kids
At J.F.K we build character everyday.  From day one, our Character Kids Program is in full swing! One student each month from each class will be selected for demonstrating the pillar of our character education program for that month. The student will earn an “Eagle Wings” certificate presented by the teacher. This will be celebrated in each individual classroom every month.  In addition, students from select classrooms will be making character quotes each morning over the PA system based on the pillar that month.

Be generous with praise!
Observe your child carefully and comment on the things that are done well. When you see an area that needs improvement, find a positive way to talk about it with your child.
Encourage your child's personal best.
Help your child by encouraging him or her to do their best in school and at home. Remember, "personal best" does not mean "perfect", and learning is not the same as high grades. Children, like adults, need the freedom to make mistakes and to learn from them.
Make learning a priority!
Your attitude toward school attendance, education and involvement in the school makes a strong and lasting impression on your child. Show your child, by example, that learning is a priority.
Show interest in school work each day.

  • Talk about school each day.
  • Ask to see classwork.
  • Have your child read aloud to you.
  • Read to and with your child from a variety of material in your first language.
  • Encourage your child to discuss new ideas and opinions.
  • Show appreciation for good efforts.


Offer these suggestions for success:

  • Read the assignment when it is given.
  • Keep a list of new vocabulary.
  • Proofread assignments to catch errors before writing a final draft.
  • Review notes before a test.

Schedule study time! Set up an area for homework away from noise and distractions. Post a family calendar that schedules school project deadlines, after-school activities, mid-term dates, exam periods and report card dates.
