Sherwood "Cool Character" students are chosen by their homeroom teacher at the end of each month. Students are chosen based on their ability to display specific character traits in the classroom, around the school, with their teacher and fellow classmates. There is not a set limit to whether the students meet a specific criteria each month unless it is set by their homeroom teacher;However they usually chose someone who displays the character traits consistently throughout the month. Students are awarded with a certificate to recognize them and get the opportunity to participate in a special breakfast with the counselor. The counselor, Mrs, Long, has a short synopsis (discussion) about each character trait and has students share ways they have demonstrated each trait. Students are given a "COOL Character" necklace with a SES logo, a prize, and have their picture taken and posted to the Cool Character Bulletin Board.
