Eagle of the Month

As we kick off the beginning of the year, our first Eagle of the Month characteristic is fairness. We define fairness as treating everyone with an equal amount of respect. The same respect you give the principal of the school should be the same respect you give a classmate. By demonstrating fairness, we provide a safe environment for all students who attend our school. The character challenges of the month are:

· Demonstrate fairness by showing acts of kindness to all classmates.

· Demonstrate fairness by playing by the rules in games.

· Demonstrate fairness by telling the truth.

· Demonstrate fairness by standing up for someone that needs help.
