Our quote for the week is, "A person's a person, no matter how small. Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners."
October character trait of the month is respect. Respect is when you treat people with consideration and courtesy and do not violate them physically or verbally. You are tolerant of differences in each other and value their opinions. Having self-respect is the foundation for any healthy relationship and involves making wise choices, expressing feelings appropriately, and chosing positive friendships.
Once again this month, Ms. Giraud is holding a contest for the best poster with the theme of respect. Prizes are given, turn all posters in by tomorrow Oct 25th. See the example in the commons area.
