Elementary Nobility Class Project


We are happy to announce that RMCA
participated in a change collection for our
Generosity trait last month. Our definition for
generosity is as follows: A willingness to give or
to share and support others with positive
encouragement.

Our trait is Honesty and for the class


project we will be having each class come
up with a lesson on how to teach honesty.
This can be art projects, pleadges, even
videos of kids depicting honest acts.

The proceeds will go to a charity called Knights
