Character Day

Published: June 3, 2015

At the end of the school year, our third grade teachers and students dedicated a day in which they honored the memory of our beloved teacher, colleague and friend, Joal Stanfield.  The third grade teachers created the day as a way to honor Mr. Stanfield’s memory and continue his legacy and belief of “Character Before Victory.”  Our third grade team decided that students would walk to Southwood Park at the end of Nebraska Avenue to pick up trash and litter in the park, serving others in our community and leaving the park just a little bit better than when the students arrived. The students did this on Tuesday.  Following their work in the park, students gathered at the Idlewood tennis courts for a group picture. 

Each year, Character Day will evolve and change to fit the needs of our third graders, but will never stray far from Mr. Stanfield’s message of instilling and modeling character in all that we do. It will always be about the impact that Joal had on us...and carrying on his legacy to help and serve others. Next year and in the years that follow, we will look to recognize two outstanding third graders who consistently model Mr. Stanfield’s belief of “Character Before Victory” along with the annual Character Day. We considered beginning that recognition this year, but felt that we could not select just two third grade students for that award. Every third grade student demonstrated considerable character and strength throughout this entire school year.  We felt that we could not choose only two students this year, but would plan for that honor in future years.  Pictured are Mrs. Bressner’s class, Mrs. Guetschow’s class and the entire third grade class, including Mrs. Knepp’s students after their afternoon of service at Southwood Park.
