Six Pillars of Character

Silver Strand Elementary Character Counts Week

Presentations by our MFLC and school counselor on the six pillars of character took place this week during library specials.  They are also are working with students in creating a hand print quilt, tracing their hands on a square of colored paper that corresponds with their grade’s pillar color and writing the way in which he/she displays that character trait.  This collaborative quilt will be completed and on display for parents to view by October 30th.   On October 23rd, students are asked to wear a shirt that corresponds with his/her grade’s pillar color.  During the Friday Flagpole Ceremony, we’ll be taking a school photo to post on our website showing Silver Strand’s true colors of character.
