Character Education Programs


Positive Paws Program

"Positive Paws Program identifies students that display the six pillars of character education: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship."

If at any time teachers, staff or administrators see a student demonstrating any of the six pillars of character, the student will get their name displayed on our school walls.

Kids with Character Program

The “Kids with Character” program recognizes MSS students who are volunteering for non‐profit agencies/volunteer services, and who complete ten (10) or more hours of volunteer service within a twelve (12) month period.

Students of the Month

Congratulations to our Students of the Month. They have demonstrated "Husky Pride" by exemplifying the 6 Pillars of Character Education: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility. Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.
