Greenwood is named a 2019 New Jersey School of Character
We are proud to announce that Greenwood Elementary School is a 2019 New Jersey School of Character!
Each year, Character.org certifies schools and districts at the state level that demonstrate a dedicated focus on character development, which has a positive effect on academic achievement, student behavior and school climate. In Schools of Character, adults embrace their critical role as models. Teachers work together as professionals — and with parents and community members as partners — to positively shape the social, emotional, and character development of the young people entrusted to them each day. Students in these schools feel safe, respected, and connected to those around them, allowing them to thrive academically and socially and be motivated to give back to their communities. Doug Karr, Character.org’s President & CEO states, “These schools’ representatives, including educators, parents and students, are working together to create stronger communities focused on character. We are honored to validate their efforts and continue coaching them along their journeys.”
