Monthly Character Trait Assemblies
As part of our Character Education emphasis at Athol Elementary, we have
monthly assemblies where we honor students for demonstrating that month’s
character trait. Students receive a certificate and an Athol Elementary
water bottle with some fun surprises inside. Along with honoring students,
we have a lot of fun at these assemblies as we celebrate being a great school
with a great student body in a great community! Parents are always invited
to attend these monthly assemblies—see our monthly calendar in the Eagle
Watch for days and times.
