We are excited for this school year's Respect for All Week (February 8-11, 2021)
Here is our schedule of events and activities to celebrate Respect and Kindness.
1. Respect and Kindness Morning Announcements ~ Students will listen to a different special message on the morning announcements each day during the week.
2. Teachers will take the time in each grade to introduce or review the "Golden Rule" -- "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." This wise counsel is found in almost every civilization and culture. "The Golden Rule" frames the topic of manners (in 3-K, Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade) nicely since good manners are part of the way we show respect for others.
3. The Great Kindness Challenge ~ students will participate in the Great Kindness Challenge during Respect for All Week. Students will be provided with a kindness Checklist that offers many suggestions and ideas for acts of kindness. The best posters, poems, kindness list, will be recognized on Friday, February 22, 2021.
4. Storybooks and character traits contest. Each classroom will presents a different storybook with related positive character traits. The winners will be announced on Friday, February 22, 2021.
