MONTVILLE, NJ –Recently published student authors will sign copies of their new book “A Road Map for Respect, Kindness, Gratitude, Grit, Courage and Resilience” on Tuesday, May 28, from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in the Montville Township High School Media Center.
Published by the Montville Township Public Schools in April 2019, “A Road Map for Respect, Kindness, Gratitude, Grit, Courage and Resilience” is the culmination of a collaborative writing process within the Montville Township Public Schools. The publication features the work of more than 125 student authors. As part of the district's Character Education and Mindfulness Initiatives, students share their perspectives on a variety of topics which reinforce the importance of respect, kindness, gratitude, grit, courage and resilience in daily lives. Students from elementary through high school levels contributed their wisdom and thoughts on these important topics. The book was edited by Montville Township Public Schools Superintendent Dr. René Rovtar.
In early May the national character education organization, Character.org, awarded the pre-kindergarten to grade 12 district a 2019 Promising Practices Award for the publication of “A Road Map for Respect, Kindness, Gratitude, Grit, Courage and Resilience.” Montville Township Public Schools was designated a National School of Character in 2018.
The new book, which provides varied perspectives on putting character into practice, is available on Amazon for $5.00. All proceeds from the sale of “A Road Map for Respect, Kindness, Gratitude, Grit, Courage and Resilience” will be used to support educational initiatives in the Montville Township Public Schools.
