The Knight Thing
Character Does Count
To all TAHS students: the PBIS team is emphasizing the six pillars of character this quarter. Remember that character does count. Practice good citizenship, responsibility, caring, respect, trustworthiness and fairness. As in the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “the function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” As we begin a new semester, we hope all students will strive to “do the Knight Thing” while in school. Special recognition will be given to all students who earn zero discipline referrals during this new semester so start working toward that goal today.
