During the assembly in April Mountaineers who demonstrated March’s character trait of perseverance, which is defined as never giving up even when something is hard, were recognized with Character Counts Awards. Find the Character Count recipients who were selected by classroom teachers below. 

The character trait for the month of April was motivation, something that makes you want to reach your goals. BES teachers gave examples of what gives them motivation and asked the Mountaineers to reflect on what motivates them, and use that to reach their goals throughout April.

Congratulations Mountaineers!

Elementary and Transportation staff award merit tickets to celebrate Mountaineers who demonstrate these traits. The students then deposit their merit into the Mountaineer Merit container found in the main hallway.

Principal Kent and Assistant Principal Cataldo draw ten merit recipients (five from kindergarten to second grade and five from third to fifth grade) each month to receive recognition and a prize at the conclusion of each assembly.
