Character Word for February

To catch up from last month, here is some information about our character word for February: RESPECT! 

Character Education lessons for this month emphasized being respectful by "treating others how you would like to be treated." Students read the Dr. Seuss book "The Sneetches" as an example of characters being disrespectful to others based on differences. The students were challenged to find similarities and differences between themselves and a partner, as well as their whole class. Counselors emphasized not teasing or excluding based on these differences as an important way to show respect.
