Citizenship - Helping to make school and community better, staying informed, obeying rules and laws, respecting authority, and protecting the environment.
Fairness - Playing by the rules, taking turns and sharing, being open-minded, listening to others, not taking advantage of others, and not blaming others.
Respect - Being tolerant of differences, using good manners and appropriate language, not threatening, hitting, or hurting anyone, and dealing peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements.
Responsibility - Doing what one is supposed to do, persevering, doing one's best, maintaining self-control, thinking before acting, and being accountable for one's choices.
Trustworthiness - Being honest, doing what you say you'll do, doing the right thing, building a good reputation, being loyal to family, friends, and country, and not deceiving, cheating, or stealing. These six attributes of character are the six pillars of the Character Counts youth-ethics initiative.
