Join CHARACTERplus for a field trip to two National Schools of Character: Ridgewood Middle School in the Fox School District and Mehlville High School in the Mehlville School District. On February 26, participants board the bus at 7 am at EducationPlus, then travel to the first school. Lunch is on you at the Terazzo Grill; you will be able to select from their Lunch Specials at $7.99 (plus beverage, tax and tip). By noon, field trippers are back on the bus and on the way to Mehlville.
