• Kissam Character Education

    At Kissam Elementary, character education is valued and encouraged. Through our character education program, students learn valuable lessons about effectively interacting with others in society. Giving students the resources they need to function in a diverse world is necessary no matter what their circumstances. Character education is the root of an individual’s ability to problem solve and make decisions that positively affect their livelihood. Each six weeks we have a character focus from the Six Pillars of Character and students in every class and grade level are recognized and awarded for their ability to display these characteristics in the school setting.
