Lamar CISD Celebrates Character Counts Week

Oct 12, 2020 | Community Relations

In addition to Safe Schools Week and School Bus Safety Week, Lamar CISD schools are also celebrating National Character Counts Week during Oct. 18 - 24.

At its September meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a resolution declaring Character Counts Week. Character Counts was created in 1992 with a coalition of 17 nationally prominent youth serving and educational organizations.

The program focuses on the development of core ethical traits – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. It has continuously evolved to reflect current research and best practices to become a comprehensive student development program.
