Hats On for Respect

Great Neck Road topped off its December character education month with a Holiday Hat Day. Each month, the school chooses a different character trait to recognize and reinforce with the elementary students. December’s character trait was respect.

Teachers have the opportunity to nominate two students, who are then selected to sit in the cafeteria’s Character Education Café. Principal Karla Cangelosi said she likes to tie the character education into a fun activity, and also makes morning announcements about the character education trait of the month.
