Elementary Schools Exemplify Character and Civic Education

Each year student teachers from Fresno State and Fresno Pacific University gather to attend the annual Conference on Character and Civic Education. These future teachers learn about best practices in promoting the ethical, moral, and socio-emotional development of their soon-to-be students.

The conference, hosted by Fresno State’s Bonner Center for Character Education and Citizenship, was sadly canceled this year due to the current environment. This was to be the Bonner Center’s 36th conference, the longest continuously run conference of its kind in the United States.

A highlight of the conference is the recognition of local schools for exemplary practices in character and civic education. In order for schools to receive this award, they must plan well in advance to infuse character education into their school curriculums, the plans must also be modeled by the adults, and students must be provided opportunities to contribute in meaningful ways to the school, to others, and to the community.

Thirty-seven Central Valley elementary schools are being awarded the Exemplary Schools Award. Once the schools return to standard operations, members of the Bonner Center Advisory Board Committee will deliver each school their award. In the meantime, the Advisory Board would like to announce the winning schools and recognize them for their character education excellence.
