Character Education

    Destination Character!
    At Hillery Park Elementary, we implement a character education program to help our students understand, care about, and act upon core ethical values.  We work as a school community to promote character development through the exploration and daily morning discussions of identified character traits.  Our character education program works to promote and develop a positive and moral school climate by engaging the participation of students, teachers, and staff.  We work with students to learn how to solve conflicts fairly, creating a positive and safe learning environment.
