I am a Student of Character

When you have the Six Pillars of Characters, you are described as a student or person of character. Being a student or a person of character requires commitment. Thus,

"Commitment is Character's Inside Stuff."

Remember, even though the six individual Pillars of Characters stands alone, they are intertwined. They share similar characteristics that lead into each other. You cannot be one without the other five.

When you make a commitment to be the best in everything that you do, you become a student of character. You exhibit Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Trustworthiness, Fairness and good Citizenship in everything that you do.

Respect:
In order to gain respect from your friends, peers, teachers, and parents, you must first respect yourself. When you respect yourself, you will automatically respect others. When you have respect, you will follow the "Golden Rule" treat other like you would like to be treated. You will be tolerant to diversity, and use good manners when dealing with other people. When you have respect, you will look to solve your disagreement through communication instead of violence. And in turn, other will respect you.

Caring:
When you say, "I am sorry," you are displaying an act of kindness by respecting other people's feelings. Remember, we all make mistakes, however, what we remember the most is what others do after they make mistake. When you care, you become one with others, You share their feelings of happiness, sorrow, loneliness, and even hurting. We all come from different backgrounds, and there are times when we come to school hurting. Be on the lookout for somebody who need their spirit lifted. Smile, offer help, and sometimes, just be a good listener, and lend somebody a shoulder to cry on; show them that you care.

Fairness:
People or students of character do their best when nobody is looking. When you are fair, you play by the rules. You don't take what is not yours, and you put things back where you found them. You also give others a chance by waiting your turn. When you are fair, you treaty everybody equally, you don't take advantage or look down on other because you understand that we are all equal in very many ways. When you have a problem, you listen to both sides of the argument before making a decision. Remember, no matter how much you don't like rules, rules evens up the playing field and allows everybody to get a fair share of what they deserve regardless of their status in the community.

Responsibility:
When you are responsible, you do what you say you will do, and say what you have done. When given a task, you always give it your best effect regardless. You use your self-discipline and control to do what needs to be done in school or at home instead of waiting for tomorrow which never comes. Most important, you dearly accept the consequence that results from your actions whether positive or negative, and do understand that you are responsible for your act.

Trustworthiness:
When you are trustworthy, you become an honest person who other can rely on. You do the right thing at the right time in the right place. You also become truthful and follow up on your words. Also, you become loyal to your friends, and family, and always stand for what is right regardless of the consequences.

Citizenship:
Good citizen work to make their community (school) a safe and friendly place for everybody. When you have citizenship in you, you become a good neighbor, and watch out for others. You don't destroy properties, you respect authority, and report bad things that threaten to destroy your community like graffiti, bulling, violence . . . You also stand up and get counted when call upon. You understand that your voice or vote may be the one that makes difference.
