Stratford School helps nurture students to become responsible citizens who actively contribute to their local and global community.
Saratoga, California (PRWEB) December 30, 2014
Stratford School today announced details of the 2014-15 Stratford Cares initiative; a schoolwide service program that encourages each Stratford student to show they care by supporting a local or global charity or cause of their choice.
The Stratford Cares initiative was developed to support one of "The Six Pillars of Character," six ethical values taught at Stratford School to help nurture students to become responsible citizens who care about their environment, demonstrate tolerance and respect, and actively contribute to their local and global community.
Stratford School believes The Six Pillars of Character are paramount in childhood education. The Six Pillars of Character include: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.
Below is a list of charities and causes Stratford students are supporting through Stratford Cares this year. For additional information, or to help show support for your favorite charity, please contact your campus.
