A. Russell Knight and Bret Harte Elementary Schools Named 2017 NJ Schools of Character

Congratulations to A. Russell Knight Elementary School and Bret Harte Elementary School for earning the prestigious designation of 2017 New Jersey School of Character. Criteria for the designations are based on Character.org's 11 Principles of Effective Character Education, which includes providing students with opportunities for moral action, fostering shared leadership and engaging families and communities as partners in character-building efforts. "You can feel the positive climate in these schools the minute you walk through the door. The students, staff and community are respectful and care about each other, and the academics scores improve," states Nina Kemps, New Jersey Schools of Character Coordinator.

Congratulations also to Joseph D. Sharp Elementary School and Joyce Kilmer Elementary School for being recognized as 2017 New Jersey Honorable Mention Schools of Character.

A Recognition Ceremony for all of the New Jersey schools will take place during the NJASECD Conference on May 19, 2017 at Rider University. The theme of the conference is, "CHARACTER IS FOREVER: Building Your Program to Last!"
