Pecan Springs Elementary School – EarlyAct FirstKnight – Knighting Ceremony – 02/2024
February 23 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am
EarlyAct FirstKnight is a revolutionary character and ethics education program for K-8 school children that, for the first time, puts Rotary into mainstream public education. Teaching the Rotary tradition of “Service Above Self” through the visually captivating theme of knightly heroes, EarlyAct FirstKnight supplements Rotarian-led bi-monthly campus service clubs with a comprehensive year-round curriculum-based character education program.
The EAFK Curriculum teaches one character trait with associated social skills each month. The school selects which trait will be taught, the order in which they will be taught, and the entire campus focuses on that one trait for 4-6 weeks. At the end of this period, a knighting ceremony will honor the student in each class who best portrays the character traits taught. This is an exciting moment that kids are fans of and that also includes the kids’ parents for a lovely surprise.
EAFK at Pecan Springs Elementary School is a program mainly sponsored by the Austin Cosmopolitan Rotary Club and the Austin University Area Rotary Club, and secondarily by the Rotary Club of Austin and the EClub of District 5870.
