Opportunity for Local Business, Government Organizations, Civic and Religious Organizations to Support Character Education in Local School
Kiowa County School is in its 4th year of intentional and comprehensive character education. The purpose is to introduce students to three adopted “core values” and give them opportunities to develop those at school and through school-sponsored instruction, activities, and events.
Treat Others Right -- Make Smart Decisions -- Maximize Your Potential
(Kiowa County’s Core Values)
We believe these core values, when consistently practiced, make students better in many areas (socially, emotionally, academically, behaviorally, and even in regard to extra-curricular activities). We also believe that the most successful people have learned to utilize these values and naturally exhibit these traits. If you or your organization/business are interested in visual displays that promote our core values and a different value word each month, please contact Kathy Headrick at the school. We would be happy to print posters for your workplace and get you the digital images to use on your business website or social media. When you sign up to help, if you are so inclined, you can also fill out an online survey and get individualized feedback on how to incorporate the values into the culture within your business or organization.
Wouldn’t it be satisfying to know your business or organization was helping make character relevant to the students of Kiowa County? And did we mention….IT’S FREE OF CHARGE! Contact Kathy Headrick today so you can get started!
