Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.
Fair people are impartial. They make decisions without favoritism or prejudice. They also honor equity. They correct mistakes, promptly and voluntarily an realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.
According to Rick Riordan, author, "Fairness does not mean everyone gets the same. Fairness means everyone gets what they need."
