Character Counts! at Hassayampa Elementary School

  • members of Coyote Choir                                            Character Counts 6 pillars                        

    Hassayampa has adopted Character Counts!, a national framework that implements character 
    education to our students. The framework is based on six pillars of character: 
     

    • Trustworthiness
    • Respect
    • Responsibility
    • Fairness
    • Caring
    • Citizenship

     
    Character education teaches these universally accepted values in order to motivate young people to incorporate them into their lives. Character education is non-partisan and non-religious.

    Throughout the year, Hassayampa Elementary School will celebrate one pillar per month through morning messages, guidance lessons, and student recognition to be presented at Festival Friday and other honor events.

    For more information about this program, please read the guidance and counseling program brochure or visit the Character Counts! website.
