SAES Character Power

Character Power 2018-2019

Thank you for volunteering!  The Character Power program supplements St. Anne's focus on academics, fine arts, and athletics by helping to develop moral character.  It is part of the curriculum for grades 1-4 and relies on parents' commitment and presence in the classroom.  There is one virtue covered each month of the school year, excluding September.  The selected virtues are respect, honesty, justice, loyalty, love, courage, hope, and service/faith.  Lessons are typically on the second Tuesday of each month, with two to four parent volunteers per session.  

Parents sign up at any time throughout the year and receive automated reminders two weeks prior to their scheduled lesson.  Each group coordinates via email, phone, or in person to review materials and allocate responsibilities.  There is a character power section in the library closet with designated books and lesson plans. The documents are also available online and can be downloaded below.  Our librarian has requested that character power prep meetings be limited to the times shown below.  If none of these options work for your group but an in person meeting prior to the lesson is desired, please pick up the materials from the library and proceed to another open space.  Parents gather in the classrooms at 8:00am on the assigned date to set up, and the kids arrive after assembly, between 8:15am and 8:30am.  Each lesson has a similar sequence (a) parent introductions (b) definition of the virtue (c) book reading and discussion (d) activity.  Snacks and/or elaborate lesson plans are discouraged.  The lesson concludes at 9:15am.  All books should be returned to the library. 

Enjoy!  Important considerations are to be prepared, inclusive, and respectful of all children and teachers.  If your group is particularly creative and develops a new lesson plan, please email the character power website ([email protected]) and add a copy of your plan to the binder so future classes can benefit from your legwork. 

Thank you for contributing your skills and time!  If you would like more information or assistance, please contact Erin Burr or Father Al.
