February's Character Counts Pillar: Citizenship
"Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.” President John F. Kennedy
Our February’s Character Counts pillar and theme for Character Counts is Citizenship.
The above quote of the week is something we have been doing all year long as part of Character Counts. Next week we will have a new quote. This month’s Character Counts Pillar is Citizenship and JFK’s call for volunteerism is a good example of what it means to show citizenship. Character Counts defines citizenship this way: Do your share to make your school and community better; cooperate; get involved in community affairs; stay informed; vote; be a good neighbor; obey laws and rules; respect authority; protect the environment; and volunteer.
This month’s Character Counts Rally is on February 27, starting at 8:15 am.
