Character Counts

Character Pillars

Our mission in South Plainfield is to provide our students with opportunities to develop important character values, assets, and leadership skills that will help them reach their full potential and become positive and productive members of our community. It just makes sense to teach young people right from wrong, in the classroom, living room, and locker room. We want to be surrounded by good people, people we can trust to make decisions according to principle rather than expedience. After all, what are education, coaching, and child rearing supposed to be about? They should guide children to develop strong character traits to live healthy and happy lives. We invite you to join this team effort and support South Plainfield's initiative to encourage good character in our daily lives.

The 6 pillars of good character are: Responsibility, Citizenship, Caring, Respect, Fairness, Trustworthiness


Each month is represented by a color and is dedicated to a specific character trait:

October - Responsibility

November - Citizenship

December - Caring

January - Caring

February - Respect

March - Respect

April - Fairness

May - Trustworthiness
