Conscientious, Citizenship, and Chloe

Published on November 6, 2013

Mantua – Crestwood Schools have much more going for them than just the three Rs. This fall, Primary School Principal Cindy Ducca and Intermediate School Principal Michelle Gerbrick have instituted a program that rewards students for exhibiting crucial skills at each of their schools — qualities they call the two Cs. Those character traits include being conscientious students and being super citizens. Each quarter, classroom teachers from Preschool through Grade 5 will select students who best exemplify those character traits. Those talented students have the chance to have lunch with a special guest whose name also starts with C — Chloe the Therapy Dog.

In addition, the winning students will have their photo on display at school in Chloe’s Wall of Fame. As you can see from the photos, the students really enjoy the special time they spend with Chloe. And although Chloe is characteristically quiet during the lunchtime meetings, the feeling appears to be mutual.
