The character education committee is led by the teachers. The committee includes representatives from each grade and together they coordinate the service learning projects and set the virtues of the month, such as honesty and self-control. Each grade level is responsible for one of the assemblies each year and puts posters up in the halls promoting good character and service learning projects. This helps inform their school friends about positive behavior.
The buddy system at Jacksonville Country Day School, where each younger student is paired with an older buddy, also reinforces good behavior. This is also true of Leadership Corps, where 6th graders assist younger students as they get in and out of their cars at the traffic circles and walk their early learning friends to their classes.
