Character Building

  • This year at Turman Elementary, we are committed to developing students of good character. To reach this goal, we have implemented a program called TrueSuccess which focuses on nine virtues that Turman staff will educate students about. To have students truly understand each virtue, we will model it, read books about it, watch videos that demonstrate the virtue, as well as giving daily feedback to students. At each quarter's award assembly, a student from each class that has modeled the virtue in an exemplary fashion will be recognized with a character award. We truly want to make sure we are molding not only lifelong learners but also students that are virtuous citizens.
