Character Counts Week
Although the six pillars of character are a major focus throughout the school year at North Frederick Elementary School, one week in October (18-24) is designated to the nationwide promotion of good character.  Many fun activities will take place during the week to build awareness of the value of being a person of character.
Red Ribbon Week
National Red Ribbon Week (October 23-31) is an effort to teach children about the dangers of drugs, and to promote a drug-free lifestyle.  Students will have the opportunity to participate in several activities during the week. 
Career Day
In the spring a Career Day is offered to 5th grade students to gain a better understanding of the world of work, and to have the opportunity to learn about interesting career choices.
