Character Traits

At CCS we strive to model, integrate and encourage our Character Traits. Each CCS Character Trait is taken from the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5. Monthly, we focus on one new trait, and intentionally integrate it into the curriculum in each class. Students who have exemplified the trait of the month are awarded.

The CCS Character Traits include:

Love (September)

Love is meeting another's needs unselfishly. Love is a verb.

"My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you." -John 15:12

Joy (October)

Joyfulness is being happy inside and out!

"Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in His salvation." -Psalm 35:9

Peace (November)

Peace is having a calm and quiet spirit...even in tough situations!

Patience is waiting with a happy spirit!
"You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near." -James 5:8
