Sequoia Strong Character Education for October: Responsibility

Responsibility is taking ownership of thoughts, words, and actions. This trait is essential for becoming a healthy, happy, and productive person. Responsibility begins with “little things” like taking care of your belongings, working with a good attitude, resolving conflicts peacefully, and owning up to mistakes. Taking responsibility in these “little things” prepares students for greater opportunities in the future. We are responsible for ourselves, others, and our community at Sequoia!
