Christian Character Traits

The Conqueror Award is awarded weekly to students in elementary who have been “caught” doing good. Teachers submit the student’s name, trait, and explanation of their good actions to the principal, who publicly recognizes the student during a weekly chapel service. Students receive a “Conqueror” ribbon, a certificate of honor, and the note from the teacher.
