As we get started on our second month of school (can you believe it?), the season is starting to change. The days will get shorter and cooler weather will be upon us as autumn commences. One thing that will not change with the season is our six pillars of character that we use day in and day out: Trust, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship (TRRFCC). When our students graduate from Liberty, it’s important to us that they move on with these character attributes that will ultimately help them succeed and make a positive impact in their communities.

Because we place high value on enriching the character of each of our students, we would like to take a moment to define each pillar:

Trustworthiness
Belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.

Respect
A feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way.

Responsibility
The state of being the person who caused something to happen; also a duty or task that you are required or expected to do.

Fairness
Agreeing with what is thought to be right or acceptable and treating people in ways that do not favor some over others.

Caring
Effort made to do something correctly, safely or without causing damage.

Citizenship
The quality of an individual’s response to membership in a community.

As the school year continues, more change will come, but we will stand by these six pillars of character. We do believe change is good, but with good character, change is easier to accept with optimism and confidence.
