SST Corpus Christi is dedicated to creating an environment that helps students academically and also molds each one into successful citizens. As a parent, we know you work hard to instill morals and character traits in your child at home. As a school, we have offered many programs to also help build students’ awareness of their character.
Thanks to parent and teacher input on our character traits survey, we have established a list of character traits for the year.
We will have activities, discussions and information to share focused on these traits each month.
Thank you parents!
