ISPR is taking C.H.A.R.G.E! of character development! Our character education program has been designed to align with Imagine’s Shared Values and address the social and emotional development of our students. At ISPR, we develop character while enriching minds.
Our school counselor works hand in hand with teachers toer conversations. Students learn about each of the character traits as it relates to their world. For example, a kindergartener may demonstrate courage by introducing themselves to a new student while an 8th grader may demonstrate courage by standing up for the underdog when s/he cannot stand up for him/herself.
