Character Counts

Our October theme for Character Counts is Respect.

What does Respect mean? It means such things as the following: Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule; be tolerant and accepting of differences; use good manners, not bad language; be considerate of the feelings of others; don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone; deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements.  

October’s assembly will take place October 30th as there is no school for students on October 31st (teachers will be here for a full day of Professional Development). These Character Counts rallies are fun! There are skits, cheers, singing and other engaging activities. Parents and guardians: You are always welcome to come to school, sign in, and be part of this terrific event! As for Respect, please help model and reinforce what it means. Here at school we are having a contest to see which class comes up with ways to best illustrate this Character Counts Pillar. Thank you!
