Artisan of the Month


The purpose of a school-wide character education program is to encourage lifelong social and academic success of students and emphasize a cooperative and supportive school climate by instilling and reinforcing strong moral and ethical character within the school community.


The Artisan of the Month program at ArtSpace will consist of the following:

  • Monthly trait: each month of the school year will focus on a different character trait related to the 4 pillars (Effort, Leadership, Service, Respect). The trait of the month will be posted in common areas of the school. 
  • Beth Garrison compiled a book list that corresponds to each month’s trait for optional class readings. 
  • Artisans of the month: teachers and staff can opt to nominate a student (from any class) who they feel represents the monthly trait by completing a nomination form via google forms (which will be sent out monthly). All nominees will receive a certificate, be mentioned on the morning announcements, featured in a spotlight on the school website.
