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.
PECEC Core Values
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.
