Character Education Program
Character Education plays a big role in the overall education of our students at Ridgecrest as we strive to cultivate student Leadership, Service, Scholarship, Innovation, and Citizenship. Each month students study a character trait and read our “Character Book of the Month” which reinforces our core values. Students are taught numerous protocols to establish personal goals, monitor their learning, and to foster a growth mindset.
Service learning continues to grow as a major school initiative.This year, we are growing our school’s “Adopt-A-Spot Program” where classes commit to keeping our campus clean and shining! Students also participate in many other school-wide and class service learning opportunities.
A new initiative is to promote “Digital Citizenship” as we discuss what good character looks like in cyberspace. We are proud of our school’s Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) Club for their work promoting character education across our school. Thank you to our wonderful parents and community partners for their committed support in character building!
