"We are extremely proud to recognize the schools and organizations that have developed and implemented a Promising Practice” said Dr. Arthur Schwartz, President of Character.org. “Each of these programs and initiatives have demonstrated significant impact and strongly align with the principles that help schools and organizations cultivate a culture of character.”
This year’s character development practices and initiatives included peer mentoring, service-learning, and conflict resolution approaches. Many of the Promising Practices also involve parents and the local community. See the full list of our 2022 Promising Practices below.

At Nixon School, we take pride in our teaching and learning process, which is focused on the whole child with the intent of fostering and developing a growth mindset in all. Individualized student growth is supported and celebrated. Such growth is accomplished through the implementation of a comprehensive curriculum which is aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards & Next Generation Science Standards; use of a workshop model of instruction in ELA and Mathematics; and hands-on, minds-on instruction in all curricular areas including social emotional learning. A tremendous focus is also placed on infusing technology into our curriculum, so that our students are equipped with 21st century skills and experiences.
Nixon School is a place where students, families, community members, and staff work together to BE THE CHANGE. We are truly ONE community working towards the goal of helping each other to positively impact our own lives, as well as the lives of others. Thank you for being a part of this important work!

The district distributed 1100 reusable produce bags filled with fruits and vegetables to Roxbury families.
Roxbury Township elementary schools used sunflower crafts to show love and support for the people of Ukraine. The sunflower ties us all to the Ukrainian people so naturally the students at Franklin, Jefferson, Kennedy, and Nixon were happy to take part in the sunflower project.
