Character Education Attributes


"Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."
Abraham Lincoln
Each month the New Milford schools focus on a character education trait in order to encourage and foster its development in our school communities. At Northville, the monthly character trait is highlighted in the daily announcements by a third grade student who reads a quote and shares an example of the character trait in action.
