Gift Card Donations
In February, every teacher and support personnel in all seven Maryville schools will participate in Spotlight - our annual retreat intended to inspire, rejuvenate, and honor our colleagues for their hard work and dedication. Traditionally, gift cards are collected from parents and the community and used as prizes or gifts during the event.
If you are in a position to purchase (or re-gift) gift cards for this occasion, we would greatly appreciate it. Please drop off the cards in our CGIS school office throughout the month of January.
The Leadworthy Character Trait for January is Respect!
Respect- It's the R in our SOAR!
What is Respect?
Respect is the willingness and ability to act professionally and thoughtfully with ourselves and others. Leaders can deal respectfully with opposition and provide space for both dignity and differences to coexist.
Why focus on Respect?
- Respect contributes to a positive culture. People feel safe, supported, and engaged in the context of thoughtful social, emotional, civic, and intellectual interactions.
- Respect decreases conflict. Respect helps us, and others, to be able to express ourselves without fear of being judged, humiliated, or discriminated against.
- Respect encourages empathy. Respect helps us to understand each other and put ourselves in someone else's shoes.
Respect in Action:
- Teach students that words have power. How we talk to others, and ourselves, can motivate or discourage, connect or destroy, hurt or heal. We should choose our words with care.
- Create opportunities for group decision-making. Open dialogue engages students in a process where compromise is crucial to making decisions.
- Vary protocols for classroom sharing. Frequently use open-ended questions, partner sharing, and small group activities to connect and promote understanding between students.
