We can respect our parents by listening to them and being honest. We can show respect to our teachers by listening and following directions, being prepared in class and by using works like please and thank you. We can show respect to our school by picking up trash even when it is not ours, and cleaning up our messes. You can show respect to yourself by being on time, being prepared, and by always doing your best. Remember we need to commit ourselves to "REACH" to become our very best.

"Just Reach One!" with Dennard Mitchell sent a powerful message to everyone. We need to commit ourselves to REACH, the R standing for showing responsibility and respect, to yourself and to others, the E for being Empowered, knowing that we need to speak positively to ourselves, A is for acts of kindness every day you can give complements or just say hello, C is for Compassion take his challenge and make someone feel good, H stands for Healthy and Happy Lifestyle staying away from drugs, alcohol by making positive choices. Follow the ABC's of life with action, belief, and comittment. Our hope is to carry through on this challenge by not bullying others, by being a positive person who always makes sure you try to be a better person today than you were yesterday! Lets have discussions in advisory on how we can carry this forward in our school.
