Scottsburg Elementary School students participate daily in the Character Strong curriculum for Social Emotional Learning. The focus for the month of January was “perseverance.” Students learned that no matter how difficult a task or skill may be, they are not to give up keeping the most positive attitude in knowing that they will succeed. Students who demonstrated perseverance were rewarded with a treat. Each month one of the character traits will be recognized: honesty, cooperation, courage and creativity. February is Kindness Month.
