Character education is a curriculum focus for the 2011 – 2012 school year. Marble Falls I.S.D. selected the Character Counts curriculum to be used as a resource. Character Counts was developed by the Josephson Institute of Ethics in 1992. We hope that homes and businesses will support this curriculum by posting the 6 Pillars of Character in your homes and businesses, using them as focal points for discussion, and by being models of these traits.
The students of Marble Falls are encouraged to embrace the spirit of kindness by reaching out to other students, family and community members. The elementary character education program has an overall focus of applying kindness in everyday school lessons and activities. The curriculum consists of 6 Pillars of character that are studied throughout the school year. They are:
RESPECT – 1st Six Weeks
RESPONSIBILITY – 2nd Six Weeks
TRUSTWORTHINESS – 3rd Six Weeks
FAIRNESS – 4th Six Weeks
CARING – 5th Six Weeks
CITIZENSHIP – 6th Six Weeks
