DeKALB – The final event of Clinton Rosette Middle School’s four-part series of family wellness events will teach middle school-aged boys about character.

“Champions of Character” will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Clinton Rosette Middle School, 650 N. First St., DeKalb.

The conference will feature community speakers, heath and nutrition information, and teach boys about self-esteem and community involvement, said Brooke Condon, assistant principal at Clinton Rosette.

The event will help boys understand their place in the world, learn to create positive relationships, gain confidence that empowers them to make good life choices, and experience support from their family and community leaders, according to a news release.

The school held a conference for girls in the fall where they discussed social and emotional issues girls face in middle school, Condon said.

Dinner and free babysitting will be available.

The event is open to anyone who is interested in attending.
