  • USA Elementary School takes tremendous pride in the behavior of its students.  A common characteristic of every student at USA Elementary School is their outstanding citizenship. Our Character Education Program has three components:

    Behavior Improvement Plan

    During the 1998-1999 school year, teachers from USA Elementary and Middle School received a Character Education Grant from the Huron County Juvenile Justice Program. This grant allowed teachers to visit other schools, attend conferences and purchase materials related to character education. After carefully studying Character Counts, the Michigan Model, and attending a Ten Sigma Conference , USA chose to implement parts of Character Counts and Ten Sigma.

    Morning Character Assembly
    Top

    Our daily school-wide Character Education Assembly receives much praise from both inside and outside our community. Each morning at 8:00 a.m. , our entire student body, along with teachers, support staff members and many parents meets in the gym. Our Special Education/Reading Recovery Teacher, Dave Good, plays guitar while students learn seasonal, fun and patriotic songs. The students sing the National Anthem and say the Pledge of Allegiance. Our principal, Libby Treiber distributes birthday certificates and recognizes students for special achievements. Each classroom takes turns sharing with the entire student body their ideas of character.  Students can use their own words or take sayings from the book 180 Days of Character, written by Donna Forrest and published by Youthlight, Inc. We often invite special guest speakers from the community to participate, play games or conduct brain exercises, and have special student performances. Many parents are amazed that their child is willing to get in front of the group to develop their presentation skills.

    Our students have performed at many community functions since our Morning Character Assembly was implemented.  They've sang the National Anthem at basketball and football games, performed a halftime singing show at a varsity basketball game and played the National Anthem on bells at a basketball game.

    Classroom Character Building

    Classroom teachers use our monthly school-wide character themes to reinforce behavior expectations in the classroom. This gives faculty a common language to speak with children related to character.  And it is a language that all of our students understand.

    If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact our school principal, Libby Treiber, at (989) 883-9147 or e-mail to: treiberl@usak12.org. We also have a student-made video available upon request.  We invite you to visit our Morning Character Assembly. You'll be impressed with the character of our students.
