We are happy to announce that students at Akron Elementary will, once again, have the opportunity to be rewarded for displaying acts of character!

    To reinforce the idea of being "Bucket Fillers"--and in keeping with our travel-related Reading Theme for the year--each time a student is recognized for demonstrating an act of character, he/she receives a "CHARACTER CAMPER" to complete. This card is filled out with their name, grade/teacher and what they did to demonstrate their being a "Bucket Filler."  The card is then deposited into a box housed in the Main Office, and is eventually added to the giant bucket displayed outside of the Main Office so that all can see the many acts of character taking place at Akron Elementary!

    Occasionally, specific acts of character will be read over the morning announcements as examples of how our students are being "Bucket Fillers." And again this year... Once (and every time!) our giant bu
    cket has been filled, Principal Esposito and Assistant Principal Kos will treat the WHOLE school to a special surprise!  So the more Character Campers we earn, the quicker our bucket is filled, and the more surprises we'll receive!
    Akron Elementary is "Going Places with Good Character!"
