HONESTY is the focus for March!

This month we’re talking about Honesty!


The dictionary defines it as: “fairness and straightforwardness of conduct; adherence to the facts.”


The definition we are using in class is:

Honesty: living truthfully in your words and actions and thoughts!


Honesty is a lot more than just telling the truth – it is also about thinking and acting in a way that feels consistent, kind, and sincere. What do we do with honest thoughts that aren’t very nice? How do our actions in Honesty help or hurt our relationships. Over the course of the month, we will talk about people from Emily Bronte to Jackie Robinson who lived out Honesty in their words and actions. We discover new games and techniques to make us more honest competitors and more thoughtful friends. It will be a time of challenging, but rewarding conversations – thanks for being a part of them!
