    Tree Perseverance-doing the right thing, even when it is difficult

    We highlight a different character trait each month at Rattlesnake.  We talk about it, look for examples of students showing the trait, read books where the characters show the trait of the month, and hold a fun asssembly at the end of the month to celebrate the character trait.  The character trait for May is Perseverance.
