Character Strong

District 518 is excited to be utilizing CharacterStrong district wide this year to enhance students social and emotional learning moving forward.  Character Strong is a Kindergarten through 12th grade curriculum that creates a place where students feel like they belong and learn skills that will help them be the best they can be! CharacterStrong has three main goals for students: Be Kind, Be Strong, and Be Well. The kindergarten through fifth grade curriculum is titled Purposeful People and focus on ten skills, such as kindness, respect, and empathy.  The sixth through twelfth grade curriculum is titled CharacterStrong and focuses on engagement, belonging, and student well-being. We will be utilizing this curriculum in various ways throughout each building and look forward to helping build well rounded students as we prepare them to be successful citizens in the future.
