BIG CYPRESS — The Ahfachkee School awarded its first students of the month for each grade level in September.
Students of the month are chosen based on the school’s newly implemented character education program, which focuses on a different character trait every month.
The eight character traits are cooperation, responsibility, citizenship, kindness, respect, honesty, self-control and tolerance. Students of the month all demonstrate mastery and usage of the trait. October’s trait was cooperation.
