Pemberton Learning Community: Pursuing Excellence One Child at a Time
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.
