Character Counts! October is RESPECT Month!

Character Counts! October is "Respect" Month

Strong Character is something we want to teach all of our students here at Hot Springs Schools. The District uses the Character Counts program to help us teach the six pillars of a positive character.charactercounts

Each month for the next 6 months students will be studying a different pillar and recognized for there strong character as well as being certified upon completion of the program.

During the Month of October, Hot Springs Elementary School will be learning about Pillar 2 of Character Counts:

  • Follow the Golden Rule.
  • Be accepting of differences.
  • Be courteous to others.
  • Deal peacefully with anger,
  • insults, and disagreements.
  • Be considerate of others’ feelings.
  • And what it means to have respectful character at home, school & in the community
