As part of the county initiative, North Carroll Middle School will focus on the character traits listed in the CCPS information Calendar each month.  Lessons will be provided to help students to learn about and practice these traits during their HERO group sessions.  HERO groups will meet at least once per month.  Teachers will also incorporate these traits into lessons across the curriculum as they apply.

Students will be awarded "Hero Bucks" when appropriate and then given the opportunity to use those "Hero Bucks" to attend some special after-school events or to win special prizes at the end of each quarter.
