Spirit Assemblies are held monthly. During spirit assemblies, designated grade levels present a short program and Students of the Month and other special awards and recognitions are presented.
It is the school's intent to provide a continuous program of character and social development for students. Each month a different character theme, determined by the Glendale Character and Ethics Project, is highlighted and integrated into daily lessons and classroom activities. Students who best demonstrate the monthly character theme are selected by their teacher as Student of the Month. Students of the Month are recognized at each Flag Ceremony.
