This past week, Columbia’s Character Team was working hard to inspire and motivate their peers during the school’s annual Character Week.
Each day highlighted a different character trait and students were invited to participate in activities related to the day’s theme. Among the traits celebrated were responsibility, caring, peaceful and positive conflict resolution, inclusiveness, and perseverance.
Students were delighted to participate in the unique and interactive character activities. Along with putting character into action, students learned about the importance of character and made many new friends.
Thank you to our Student Development and Student Leadership teams for their work in organizing this week’s events.
