R E S P E C T – In sharing our definitions of respect and remembering to put it into practice here on campus – let’s read a couple submissions to the contest last week. 6th grader Kelli says that “respect means that you treat people with kindness and do not say mean or rude things to or about them. 7th grader Stephen wrote that “even though people don’t show respect to you – you show respect to everyone.” Let’s make sure that our halls are filled with respect throughout the day and really think about how we treat people.
