So what do these things MEAN to me???  The TCKS Character Education Committee has created a "Door-to-Door Handbook of Character Education".  The intent of this handbook is to document a positive description of desired student behavior based on 12 character qualities adopted by Traut Core Knowledge School.  (Door to Door Handbook)
