    As many of you aware we follow a program at Solana Highlands called Character Counts!™ At Solana Highlands, we believe strongly, that it is not enough to simply educate our students in the mind. We want them to be good people too!

    Character Counts!™ is based on six core values that define good character. These values are called “The Six Pillars of Character.” They are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. Every four to six weeks, Solana Highlands will focus on a pillar. The six pillars will be woven into our daily behavior expectations and in our curriculum through a variety of ways.

    We are confident that by implementing Character Counts!™ at school we will continue to increase students’ awareness of what it means to be a person of character, and the importance of making positive choices. We want our students to know that Character Counts!™ 

    The best way to teach Character is through the T.E.A.M. approach—Teach, Enforce, Advocate, and Model. So please, help support us at school by discussing, modeling, encouraging, and providing opportunities to teach your child about how important having good character is.

    If you would like to have any additional resources (quotes, book lists, activities), have any questions, or ideas please do not hesitate to call me.

    Thank you for your support,

    Lindsey Conley
    Principal, Solana Highlands
