Character Counts! Week: Oct 20-26

During this week I will be visiting classes to talk about the 6 pillars of character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.  At the end of the week students will earn an award for having great character and a certificate to a free meal at Mighty Fine Burgers.

The week concluded with students wearing a different color based on the character trait they felt they were strongest at:
  • Trustworthiness: Blue (as in "true blue")
  • Respect: Yellow or Gold (as in the Golden Rule)
  • Responsibility: Green (as in being responsible for a garden or finances)
  • Fairness: Orange (as in dividing an orange into equal sections to share)
  • Caring: Red (as in a heart)
  • Citizenship: Purple (as in the Purple Heart)
Our school was a colorful place, and one creative 2nd grader designed his own special shirt highlighting all of the colors.
