Character Education

New Kent adopted the Character Counts! program as their county-wide character education program. This program focuses on educating children on six pillars: respect, responsibility, caring, trustworthiness, citizenship, and fairness in order to develop their character. At NKES, we will be learning about a character trait each month and ways we can demonstrate that trait. There will be a school-wide incentive that is tied to each month's character trait. 

Below is the Character Counts! website, if you would like more information on the program.
