September Virtue - Respect 

Principal's September Message:

Our virtue for the month of September is: Respect.  Students will be taught that respect is an attitude of caring about people and treating them with dignity.  Respect is valuing ourselves and others.  We show respect by speaking and acting with courtesy.  When we are respectful we treat others as we want to be treated.  Respect includes honouring the rules of our family or school, which makes life orderly and peaceful.  It is knowing that every man, woman and child deserves respect, including ourselves. 

 You can further support these teachings at home by reinforcing the following signs of success in showing respect:

  • I treat others as I would like to be treated.
  • I speak nicely to everyone.
  • I take special care of other people's belongings.
  • I am receptive to the wisdom of elders
  • I honour the rules of my family, school and community. 

Until next time,

Mrs. Tracy Wagner
