Word of the Week: Character is the word for the first thirteen days of school. The definition of character is "the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual." Last week at our back to school assemblies, we spoke about the importance of studying certain character traits and how learning about these character strengths can help us as students and as people.
This school year we want to study the following character strengths: gratitude, social intelligence, self-control, and purpose are "Strengths of the heart", curiosity, zest, and self-control are "Strengths of the mind", and grit, growth mindset, and optimism are "Strengths of will." Each month this year we will focus on a particular strength, but it is important to think about all these character strengths all year long.
A quote about character, “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
