    Chick-fil-A "Core Essentials" Character Eduction program 

    This year, the IES character education program is sponsored by Chick-fil-A.


    The website for Core Essentials is www.coreessentials.org. To learn more about the program, please go to this website. It is very resourceful.

    Chick-Fil-A cards are randomly distributed to students by teachers and staff members, when students are observed using good choices or one of the Core Essential monthly lifeskills. This can encourage and teach students to learn and practice the value words and lifeskills.
