Character Education

  • Character Education is an important component of every child's education. At Clinton Street Elementary, ALL students use a model of the Six Pillars to aid in teaching character traits. The traits are:

    *Fairness

    *Citizenship

    *Caring

    *Respect

    *Responsibility

    *Trustworthiness

    Students are encouraged to exhibit the traits in their daily behavior. Often, we have a character education rally that highlights one of the character traits. As a school and class, we strive to live all the pillars to the best of our ability.

    By using the Six Pillars of Character Education, our school hopes that ALL students can become a part of a caring community and for all the members to take responsibility for our actions and to treat all members with respect.
