EPS Family Circles

On March 24th, 2017 EPS kicked off a new exciting Character Education Initiative, entitled “Family Circles”.  We developed this program as additional way to build meaningful connections among students and staff.  All students and staff members are divided into 14 Family Circles.  Every Family Circle is comprised of students in each grade level and 2/3 staff members who serve as the group leaders.  At our first meeting each Family Circle spent time getting to know each other, learning their group name, and creating their Family Shield.  At our school meeting on 3/30/17, 3rd grade students are presenting their Family Shield to the entire school.  From this point on Family Circle meetings will occur regularly through the school year.
