Each month, September-May, teachers will acknowledge the Cornelius Kid recipient voted on for the month by their classmates. The chosen citizen will receive a pencil and a magnet the day he/she is announced.
Character Education in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is a partnership with parents and the community to foster honest, responsible and caring students. It is an intentional and proactive effort to help students understand, care about, and act upon basic values that we all share. Character Education promotes a positive school climate where students are more polite, honest and respectful, enhances student achievement by improving school attendance and reducing classroom conflicts, and encourages community involvement and a lifelong commitment to helping others.
