Jose

Age: 8 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship
Grade:

3

School:

Castle Rock Elementary School, Woodlake Unified School District

Pillar: Respect

Teacher Mrs. Carney says, "A student was overheard telling Jose to say mean and nasty comments to other students. Jose refused, telling the student he wasn't going to because he knew it wasn't respectful and didn't want to get in trouble. Even when he is taunted to do mean acts, he knows ... that it is not the right thing to do."
