 Monthly Character Traits

Six Degrees of Character

In an effort to reinforce character development, Imagine Andrews integrates the “Six Pillars of Character,” based on the national Character Counts! program, into our curriculum. We believe that these six core values — trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship — will assist each student in becoming a better person.
