On March 25, the Downey Character Counts Citywide Coalition met to honor the Downey school district for their State Golden Bell Award and unveil the city’s newest street, Caring Way.
As part of efforts to make the “Six Pillars of Character” more visible throughout the city of Downey, California, a stretch of road near the new Kaiser Permanente hospital has been named “Caring Way.”
Superintendent Dr. Wendy Doty and CHARACTER COUNTS! Teacher Trainer Mary Jo Enyeart went to San Francisco last week to receive the Golden Bell Award on behalf of the Downey, California, Unified School District.
Every year the California School Boards Association presents the Golden Bell Awards to outstanding programs in school districts throughout California. The primary purpose of the award is to recognize and support “sustainable, innovative or exemplary programs which have been developed and successfully implemented by California teachers and administrators.”
