"A person’s "character" is the summation of his or her habits, attitudes and attributes. Because those qualities are learned, they can also be purposefully taught. And they should be — because good character doesn’t happen automatically, and it’s too important to be left to chance. The effectiveness and well-being of individuals, their organizations and their society depend on it". - See more at: CHARACTER COUNTS!
The six Pillars of Character are: Trust, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. Each month, one of these traits is highlighted in our McHenry community and at Landmark. School wide posters, a bulletin board and morning announcements remind and teach us more about one of the traits each month.
A local Character Counts committee meets on the third Thursday of each month at 11:00 am in the City of McHenry offices to promote these traits in our youth and in our community.
