Cohoes City School District



The Character Trait of the Month for January is respect and tolerance!

Character Education strives to encourage positive behaviors in students in grades K-12. It promotes traits such as responsibility, caring, respect, honesty, fairness, trustworthiness and citizenship. In the Cohoes City School District, students at each of the six schools participate in Character Education to help develop these core values.
