Together, Everyone Achieves More!
You can use most any measure when speaking of success. Some measure by the size of their house or the net worth of their portfolio. However, the measure of real success is one you cannot spend. It’s the way your child describes you when talking to a friend. ~Unknown

We are pleased to announce that Character.org, a national advocate and leader for the character education movement, named A. Russell Knight Elementary School a 2017 New Jersey School of Character. The program recognized ARK as a school that has demonstrated its use of character development to drive a positive impact on academics, student behavior, and ARK's school climate. Criteria for the designation are based on Character.org's 11 Principles of Effective Character Education, which includes providing students with opportunities for moral action, fostering shared leadership and engaging families and communities as partners in character-building efforts.
Congratulations to the entire A. Russell Knight Community on this amazing achievement!
