Monthly update for staff and families - September
Start the year Respectfully!
IT HAS BEEN A GREAT START TO THE SCHOOL YEAR HERE AT JONES! OUR CHARACTER TRAIT FOR AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER WAS RESPECT. Each month a different character trait will be featured. For the month of September I visited each class for a lesson on Respect and/or read a short story and lead a discussion on Respect and what it means to be respectful in our school, homes, and community. Let's reinforce our school-wide CUBS rules and ask your student(s) what the "B" stands for (Be Respectful!)
C - Choose to be responsible
U - Use kind words and actions
B - Be respectful
S - Stay safe
