May Values

Helpfulness & Perseverance

Our values as part of Appletree's Character Education Program for May include learning about helpfulness through support and understanding, and perseverance with endurance and prioritization.  Perseverance can be shown in so many ways, in athletics, through completion of a long task, and sticking with something even though it may be hard.  Kindergarteners and First and Second Graders display helpfulness to our preschoolers during Appletree's annual Trike-a-Thon fundraiser for St. Jude, organized by Mrs. Fox. Our preschoolers show perseverance by not giving up on their bikes and trikes, even when they are challenged by the course.
