In this season of Thanksgiving, we take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your support of the Friends of CharacterPlus Fall Party.
The evening was a tremendous success! Because of you, we have raised at least $35,000 for the largest and most successful community-wide character initiative program of its kind in the country. The funds will help us serve more than 280,000 students, 25,000 teachers, 570 schools, and 65 districts throughout Missouri, Illinois and Kansas.
CharacterPlus is all about improving student performance: In schools with our programs, math scores improved by as much as 54 percent, English by 47 percent, and behavioral problems, including bullying, were reduced by as much as 51 percent. Most important, CharacterPlus programs are research- and evidence-based, with proven results of higher achievement, as well as a greater feeling of belonging and autonomy in students within the school climate.
At this time of the year, we are reminded how fortunate we are for friends like you who believe character education is essential in today’s society. We wish you a wonderful holiday full of thanks and giving.
