Braves Leader of the Month Program

The Avon Elementary School honors students each month that have exhibited great strength in a set of identified traits.  Students are provided with a medal that they wear for an entire week leading up to an assembly program in their honor.  At the assembly they receive a certificate.  


Building excellent character in our students is important to the teachers and staff at Avon Elementary School.  As part of our PBIS/BRAVES initiative we have incorporated our Braves Leaders of the Month Program to help us teach students about different character traits and behavior expectations.  Each month is assigned a specific character trait.  Throughout the month, students learn about the identified trait and discuss behaviors that exhibit this trait.  Students are encouraged to practice showing good character at school, at home, and in their community.


Teachers and staff watch for students who can be chosen as Braves Leaders of the Month for demonstrating the monthly trait on a consistent basis.  During the last week of the month, one student from each class is honored for exemplifying the monthly trait.  These students are chosen based on teacher and staff input.


Below is a list of the character traits for each month of the 2020-2021 school year.  We hope this will help you and your child understand the traits we look for when the students are chosen each month.
