BULLYING PREVENTION and POSITIVE CHARACTER BUILDING

Bullying prevention and positive character building go hand in hand. Our bullying prevention program is explained in the parent handbook that is available on our school's website. Please take time to read through it so you understand what we are doing at Montgomery Elementary to take care of our students.


Character building is the foundation to building socially responsible, successful citizens. Just as the school and home should TEAM together to successfully educate our children in all academic areas, the same holds true with reinforcing positive character traits. We will continually work together to build positive character traits in our children by organizing our efforts so we can speak the same language at home and at school. As in the past, we will emphasize one character trait each week by talking about the trait on morning announcements, in morning meetings with in classrooms, as well as throughout the school whenever appropriate. Your support at home will show our children that we are all working together for the good of all. We will publish the word of the following week in each Friday newsletter.


Next week's word is:

RESPONSIBILITY

A responsible person completes tasks and assignments, corrects his/her mistakes, and strives to do his/her best. Responsibility means doing the right thing and being dependable and accountable for what is done.
