Character Education

Panthers R.O.C.K. (Recognizing Our Character Kids) is a character education program in Knob Noster Public Schools. Our school district believes the values we teach and model are as important as academics.

Panthers R.O.C.K. teaches our students core values and defines ten teachable character traits: Integrity, Cooperation, Respect, Empathy, Compassion, Responsibility, Acceptance, Self-Control, Service, and Perseverance.

Counseling lessons are incorporated in the classrooms for students to learn how to demonstrate good character in behavior, work habits, and actions.

Character Kids are recognized each month at school based on the Character Word of the Month and celebrated at school/community events throughout the year.
