Character Education

The West Babylon School District actively integrates character education into the full spectrum of school activities and school life at the elementary level.  In focusing on specific character traits, district personnel strive to promote the social, emotional, and academic growth of each student.  The goal is to assist students in becoming morally responsible, self-disciplined citizens.  Problem solving, decision making, and conflict resolution are important parts of our comprehensive character education program, and through a variety of classroom and building activities, the students learn how their actions and decisions affect other people.

Helpful Hints

Be generous with praise!
Observe your child carefully and comment on the things that are done well. When you see an area that needs improvement, find a positive way to talk about it with your child.
Encourage your child's personal best.
Help your child by encouraging him or her to do their best in school and at home. Remember, "personal best" does not mean "perfect", and learning is not the same as high grades. Children, like adults, need the freedom to make mistakes and to learn from them.
Make learning a priority!
Your attitude toward school attendance, education and involvement in the school makes a strong and lasting impression on your child. Show your child, by example, that learning is a priority.
Show interest in school work each day.

  • Talk about school each day.
  • Ask to see classwork.
  • Have your child read aloud to you.
  • Read to and with your child from a variety of material in your first language.
  • Encourage your child to discuss new ideas and opinions.
  • Show appreciation for good efforts.


Offer these suggestions for success:

  • Read the assignment when it is given.
  • Keep a list of new vocabulary.
  • Proofread assignments to catch errors before writing a final draft.
  • Review notes before a test.

Schedule study time!
Set up an area for homework away from noise and distractions. Post a family calendar that schedules school project deadlines, after-school activities, mid-term dates, exam periods and report card dates.
