Character Counts

Character Counts

Desert Thunder has implemented the Character Counts program into the school. This program emphasizes six pillars of character which are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. Each month the school focuses on one pillar and students are recognized for exemplifying the trait.

 

Students and homeroom classes are encouraged to participate in activities that are based on each pillar. Each student or group may receive an award for their efforts. All students who are caught showing their character will receive a “thunder buck” which is placed into a drawing where the student can receive various prizes. Students may also receive a “shout out” which is read during the morning announcements.
