Robert Frost Middle School students recently participated in a Character Education Program focused on fostering traits of respect, responsibility, citizenship, perseverance, and self-leadership throughout the student body.

The Character in Action workshop, Dare to Move, included a multi-media presentation that encouraged students to live their lives to the fullest in spite of their fears. Students were inspired by personal stories of teens throughout the country that have overcome physical, social, emotional, and psychological obstacles to become successful students and people.

Dare to Move showed students that everyone will encounter hardships that will force them to ask questions, explore new options, make responsible decisions, and break free from their comfort zones. Students discussed how living courageously means standing up to bullying, encouraging those who need help, saying no to drugs and alcohol, and being a friend to those in need of one.

Throughout the presentation, students gained the confidence to move in a positive direction with their lives and take control of the challenges confronting them in order to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
