PurposeFull People character traits for our students of the month
We are on our 2nd year of SEL/character curriculum, PurposeFull People by Character Strong. Each month, scholars will learn and practice a character trait. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too! During the month of September, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate RESPECT. We will focus on using good manners, using kind language, being courteous to one another, resolving conflicts peacefully, and treating one another as we would want to be treated (and how they want to be treated!). Our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate respect. We encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!
Respect: seeing good in people and things (and treating them with care)
Think About It
Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:
K-2 What does “treat others the way you want to be treated” mean? What do “good manners” look like in our family? How does using good manners show respect? How do we already show respect at home? How can we do a better job showing respect as both kids and adults?
3-5 How does respect look, sound, and feel at school? How does respect look, sound, and feel at home? Do you have to like a person in order to be respectful? Or, can you be respectful to someone even if you don’t particularly care for or agree with them? Resolving conflict peacefully is part of being respectful. How can we show respect even when we disagree with someone?
