Our character trait for September is RESPECT: showing others they are important by what you say or do.
Respect is shown in many ways every day. We can show respect to adults, each other, our school, our country and the earth. Everyone can show respect by standing for the pledges and the National Anthem to those who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy. Children can show respect for adults by listening to adults when they are talking, by holding the door for them, or giving up your seat to an adult when all the seats are taken on a bus or in a gathering. Obeying laws and rules in our school and in our society, such as cars pulling over to let an ambulance or police car go by are also examples of respect.
When we recycle and reduce the waste we create, such as conserving water, energy or cleaning up areas that have been polluted show respect for our environment. Kids need to show respect for each other, as well, and can do this by listening to one another’s point of view, even though they might not agree with each other. Respect is a very important part of any relationship. Discuss with your families ways that you can show respect at home, school, work, and in the community.
