Character Education

  • Bee   As educators, we try to make our mark on the everyday lives of our students not only through academics, but also through character and leadership. We love our students at Helen Fort/ Newcomb Middle School and by watching this video, you will understand that students leave their marks on their educators as well. We have challenged our staff to choose students who are the reasons why they come to school each day and how the power of positivity can be contagious. You will smile and may even shed a tear or two (so make sure you have a tissue handy) when you watch this video. To all of the educators out there, thank you for all that you do each and every day and challenge yourself to take a minute to tell the student who makes a mark on your life and keeps you going each day how they impact your life.
