Pillars of Character

At the Bean school, we value good character traits and social emotional learning. Throughout the school year, students learn and practice six important character traits: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

We encourage all students to practice the character traits of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship throughout the year. Each month teachers and our guidance counselor, Mrs. Degrande, teach lessons connected to the character trait of the month. It is also communicated through the daily SEL (social-emotional learning) lessons. A student from each classroom is then nominated to receive an award for displaying exemplary character traits of that month.
