- Abigail Hutchins is McKinley Elementary's Kid of Character for April. Abby is a straight A student who is such a delight to have in class.

- Brennon Skaggs is Shawnee Elementary's Kid of Character for April. Brennon exemplifies the fairness character trait. Brennon has been assigned the job of taking down all the chairs each morning and when he finishes, he gets to move his clip up for helping. However, if someone helps him with this task, he wants the other student to move their clip up too so they can also receive recognition for helping. Also, Brennon never tries to get out of order in line because he knows that it is fair if all students stay in number order while in line.
- John Escalon is Tecumseh Elementary's Kid of Character for April. John deserves to be the kid of character for this month because he always carefully thinks through his actions and the possible consequences, and decides to do the right thing.

- Madison Avey is Warner Middle's Kid of Character for April. Madison is always prepared for the day and takes her academic career very serious. She has earned Honor Roll this entire school year. She is always smiling and ready to take on a new challenge in the classroom. One characteristic that sets Madison apart from others is her humility. Although she is quiet, she is always willing to help her classmates and her teachers. This quality carries on at home where she often helps her mom. Madison is a student who rises above to do what is right. She is kind and courteous to all. Her attitude toward school and her peers makes a positive impact on the climates for students at Warner.
