About the Character Education
EBS was founded on the philosophy of educating the whole child's heart and mind.
The idea behind this program is that character education is as important as academic education. It takes a strong partnership of parents, teachers, administrators, and children working together to develop children who show: Responsibility, Generosity,Gratitude, Respect, Forgiveness, Honesty, Compassion, Cooperation, Perseverance, and Loyalty.
Every month we celebrate a character trait.
Volunteers access our EBS Character Education website, which has easy-to-follow lessons plans. Volunteers spend about 30 minutes per month in the classroom leading a discussion, reading a book, role playing, or even doing skits and puppet shows that relate to each month's character trait. Each classroom needs one or two volunteers, as this is a job that can be shared. The EBS Character Edcuation program holds a yearly Thanksgiving food drive, sponsors special school assemblies and partners with the non-profit charity, Friends and Family Community Connection.
