    Character Education is a learning process for the students and adults in our school community that complements our approach to preschool learning by addressing service learning, social-emotional learning and to be part of a community.  Today the vast majority of Americans share a respect for fundamental traits of character:  respect, caring, trustworthiness, fairness, citizenship, responsibility, compassion, empathy, honesty, and loyalty.  Yet, in today's world, all children face great uncertainties in a complex and sometimes troubled society.  These traits are not always readily apparent and easy to grasp or learn; therefore, our challenge is to educate, inspire, and empower our students to be ethical and engaged citizens.

    Students at Pemberton Township Schools are recognized daily for demonstrating qualities that represent our K-5 Core Values of Character (Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Perseverance, and Service).  At the preschool level, we have also identified these same Core Values of Character, however, we are using preschool-friendly terms that can be understood by our student population.

    RESPECT - We are kind to others

     RESPONSIBILITY - We take care of our things at home, at school, and in the neighborhood

     INTEGRITY - We are learning to do the right thing

     PERSEVERANCE - We keep trying

     SERVICE - We take care of others
