Gospel Value: Respect

Respecting the life and dignity of myself and each person in thought, word and action.

Dear Star Families and Friends,

Last week our teachers spent time with procedures, rules, and routines. This week our teachers went into full swing introducing subjects and getting started with academics. In addition to academics, here at St. James we teach our mission of making sure our students know, love and serve God through worship, study and service to others. In the next month we will begin our service projects. I strongly feel we are here in this world to not only help ourselves, but to help others too. If you have any ideas or would like to help in our service projects, please call me anytime. Mother Teresa once said, “Give your hands to serve and your hearts to love”.

Have a blessed weekend!

This year our Gospel Value is RESPECT!

What Does Respect Look Like? Your child's daily interaction with adults and kids alike will be more pleasant if he/she speaks and acts respectfully. Try these tips for helping your child learn about respect.

Respectful Replies- Model having a respectful discussion with your child, other adults, and teachers. Using phrases such as, "Thank you", "please", and "excuse me" can go a long way in modeling respect.

Everyday Acts-Model ways we need to respect our neighbors. Sharing with others, holding the door, and simply showing acts of kindness.

These are a few simple but effective ways to model respect. We believe one essential element in renewing and envisioning the Catholic identity of our schools is to implement Gospel values across the curriculum. Respect is a Gospel value lived from the inside out. May we seek to instill the desire within our children to help impact our community always.
