Bulldogs of Character in the Community
Contact: Jen Tate
The Bulldogs of Character program at the School District of New London was originally introduced as part of an initiative for adults in the school and community to take on a different mode of thinking regarding coaching and the language / thinking that we utilize when interacting with students in school and the community. Currently, the Bulldogs of Character program is infused throughout all levels in the district, and our goal has been and continues to be to expand these efforts into the community. A Bulldogs of Character in the Community Committee was formed in 2012, and our committee works to collaboratively create action plans to move our program forward in the community. One of our biggest missions thus far has been to spread the word about what it means to be a Bulldog of Character. We are very interested in getting businesses involved in our efforts to make Bulldogs of Character in the Community a familiar culture in New London and all of the surrounding communities. We want positive character to be a way of life for every person. Character is contagious…is YOURS worth catching?
What exactly is a Bulldog of Character?
It is a way of living dedicated to making positive character choices at home, school, workplace and within the community. The mission of our committee is to promote core values through recognizing Bulldogs of Character at school, home, in the community, and workplace and our vision is to provide character education for all students and adults wherein everyone has the opportunity to learn and practice skills at home, at school, in the workplace, and in the community in an effort to further individual growth and understanding of what it means to be a respectful, responsible, and contributing citizen within our society.

Our committee consists of business owners, community members, school board members, administrators, students, parents, and staff. We are always looking for more opportunities to grow our committee and expand the program into the community. We typically meet four times per school year and meetings last approximately one hour. We urge you to get involved so that your voice and ideas are heard.
