CHARACTER PILLARS AND ATTRIBUTES
Students in grades K-5 are involved in weekly character education lessons. The character education lessons are based on the “Character Counts” Six Pillars of Character. The Six Pillars of Character focus on the themes of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. It is our hope that the Six Pillars of Character language, traits, and values will become a natural part of the school’s culture and climate and will be interwoven throughout every classroom and every aspect of the learning experience in Hanover Township.
