Character Education
RES integrates character education in the curriculum. Our goal is to enable students to identify and demonstrate character traits appropriate to social and school settings. RES encourages the development of respect and responsibly toward self, others, and the world through the teaching and modeling of character traits.

Essential 15
Using Ron Clark’s The Essential 55 – An Award Winning Educator’s Rules for Discovering the Successful Student in Every Child as inspiration, Roebuck Elementary School has created our very own RES Essential 15 program.Teachers and staff worked together to select “15” essential expectations for character and behavior that are unique to the needs of RES and their students. RES Essential 15 posters are prominently displayed throughout the school as a reminder of the expectations for successful learning. As part of the RES Essential 15 program, students work together across grade level teams to make RES a place where character traits shape lives and promote success. Every class is part of one of the six teams: Perseverance,Courage, Kindness, Respect, Honesty, and Responsibility. The goal of the RES Essential 15 is to promote the development of college and career readiness skills, as well as build school unity and spirit.
