    Banner The New Providence School District has launched their 2018-2019 Character Education Initiative "NP...IT STARTS WITH US!"  The district-wide Character Education Kick-Off on Tuesday, October 2nd, was designed to coordinate with the National Week of Respect.  The New Providence School District created a film where students, staff and teachers were featured sharing "What do you love about NP?" or "What good deeds have you done?" or "Are you involved in any community service projects?"

    Character Education lessons are incorporated into the curriculum in all schools in the district, and unite the students in a common theme focusing on messages of kindness, respect and empathy for others.  Each school participated in events to support the Character Education Kick-Off and the Week of Respect ranging from wearing blue to raise awareness about bullying, to a lip-sync battle with a Character Education theme to a glow in the dark dance party.

    For more information, please visit the District Character Education page.
