Grades 1-8 common Virtue and Work Habit Scales:

We are not “grading” virtues; we are reflecting student behavior as we always have, whether a student is exceeding, meeting, approaching, or does not meet expectations. We continue to grade academics from the viewpoint of student knowledge but work habits and virtues are based on students’ outward display of behavior – not their internalization of what each virtue is and whether they are “virtuous” in their life.
