Random Act of Kindness Week:

Be The Change You Wish To See In The World

Congratulations to the Teacher of the year: Mrs. Barrett! 


Lafayette Mills School honors students each month who have exhibited great strength in a set of identified character traits also known as the six pillars of character. These pillars include trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. At the end of each month, one student from each class is recognized as an outstanding role model of the traits and he/she receives a Student of the Month certificate. 

A Lafayette Mills School Citizen of the Month:

  • Treats other students with kindness
  • Demonstrates responsibilitly
  • Exhibits consistent effort in academic areas
  • Demonstrates pride in the school community
  • Exhibits self-discipline
  • Demonstrates good manners consistently 

It is the hope of the staff that through the use of the Character Education program, students will develop and maintain positive character traits, self-esteem, and a sense of community.
