Character Fitness Model Schools

The St. Louis Rams have partnered with CHARACTERplus to launch The Character Fitness Model Schools Recogition. With collaboration, all-staff participation, a creative blend of multiple programs and strategies, the voice of students, and the motivation of role models it can become an integral part of school life -- every day, all year.

Applications are due March 14, 2014

  • Application (3 pages)
  • What did the 2013 Model Schools do? (32 pages)
  • Web Resources

  • NFL & St. Louis Rams programs that might supplement your efforts.

    Model Character Fitness Schools provide a holistic approach by...
    1. Combining multiple strategies and programs to create a yearlong emphasis on character and fitness
    2. Involving teachers in advisories, core and encore curricular areas (i.e., teachers introduce movement breaks; they coordinate to take turns assigning "activity homework")
    3. Developing service learning projects that are health-related and/or physically beneficial (i.e., cancer awareness, Special Olympics, Hoops for Heart, Read, Right, Run, etc.)

    The Recognition honors all schools who achieve a mastery rating by judges.

    Schools who earn recognition as a CHARACTER FITNESS MODEL SCHOOL receive
    a banner
    on-site celebration (part of assembly)
    tickets to attend a Fall 2014 Rams game
    invitation to co-present at the CHARACTERplus Conference
    presentation at Fall 2014 launch of Character Fitness.
