february students of the month

The Character Trait for February is RESPECT. Respect is showing high regard for and positive actions toward yourself, others, and property. Respect conveys a sense of admiration for good and valuable qualities. Being respectful is a very important character trait to employers. This means treating people with care and concern. It also means collaborating and working with others, especially with those who may be different from you.


Congratulations to the following students who have been recognized as Students of the Month.
