At Reiffton, we believe that every child deserves an environment where he or she can learn and feel safe as a valued part of our school community. The purpose of Character COWnts is to build upon the pro-social skills taught in the homes of our students and in our elementary schools. The Character COWnts program, with a focus on caring, cooperation, and citizenship, was professionally designed specifically to meet the needs of the students at Reiffton.
Throughout the school year, all teachers will provide lessons and activities that teach students how to react to and prepare for a variety of events, with an emphasis on positive outcomes.
