GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Highland Lakes School is this week's cool school for their focus on personal character and inspiring others.

Instead of using the school's marquee for informing students and family of upcoming events, Principal Mark Anderson uses the space to inspire everyone who comes by it.

Every other week he puts a new inspirational quote up on the board.

"I decided when I became principal that I wanted to not only inspire kids but I wanted to also inspire the neighborhood and so I've used this marquee for the last 9 years to put up inspirational quotes," Anderson said.

The school also had their Character counts assembly Wednesday - this one focusing on the pillar of caring.

"Every month we focus on individual students in classrooms that have shown good character so this month is all focused on caring. So the students that show a good ability to care basically get recognized," Anderson said.
