Lake Bluff Elementary School -A 2012 National School Of Character
Posted 05/29/2012 09:50AM

The Character Education Partnership (CEP) named Lake Bluff Elementary School as a 2012 National School Of Character.  It is the only school in Wisconsin to receive this honor this year.

This winter Lake Bluff Elementary School was selected by a blue-ribbon panel from the Wisconsin Character Education Partnership as a 2012 "State School of Character".  That designation made them eligible to be considered for the national honor.  In April, a national team arrived to assess the program. Lake Bluff was selected for having clearly demonstrated successful implementation all eleven character education principles and having created a supportive school culture where all students thrive. “Our work in character education is directed at making our school mission come to life: Each Child Respected, Each Child Included, Each Child Nurtured, Each Child Challenged, Each Child Successful,” shared Lake Bluff Principal Kirk Juffer.  

“Congratulations to the Lake Bluff Character Education Team and the whole Lake Bluff community,” added Superintendent Blane McCann. “This is a great honor. The Lake Bluff community truly is committed to serving the whole child.”

CEP will honor the 2012 National Schools of Character at the National Forum on Character Education, to be held November 1-3 in Washington, DC.  At the ceremony, Lake Bluff will receive an NSOC award, banner, and a small grant to help with outreach efforts.

“The 2012 Nation School of Character schools have built strong communities that bring people together around shared goals,” said Lara Maupin, NSOC Director. “Nobody feels alone or unwelcome in these schools. Adults are all on the same page about what’s important and, as a result, kids thrive.”

This honor is reflective of the dedication of students, staff and parents to assuring all aspects of programming include character education.
