Character Education

Character Education sets a campus climate that builds confidence and reminds students that everyone is special and possesses unique talents. Hallettsville Elementary utilizes Character Education activities to help elementary students acquire valuable character traits. Lessons are designed to help students start or continue on the track of enhancing character development.
