Would Character Council work at your school? Do you want to do more with your advisory period? Maybe you want to bring students and the community closer, or maybe you are looking to change a negative school climate into a positive one. You might want to try R Character Council, an advisory program developed at Ridgewood Middle School in Arnold, Missouri. R Character Council is a 48-minute elective class that is taught by our team of three regular classroom teachers. We organize 60 students into 15 different committees, run as cooperative groups, which do great things for the school and the community.
