Our April character trait is Courage. Courage is the ability to do what is right in the face of difficulty. Sometimes courage means being brave enough to make mistakes and learn from them every day. Courage can be shown many ways. As you learn about courage this month ask yourself questions such as: How can I show courage at school, at home, and in my community?
