Hello LVES Families! This has been a fun month of learning about Respect and Red Ribbon Week! Our Red Ribbon Week activities are meant to be fun reminders for students to respect themselves and make good choices. At the young elementary level we mainly focus on understanding that there is a difference between good and bad drugs, making positive choices, and doing your best to have self-respect by taking good care of ourselves. Students also signed our No Place for Hate Resolution of Respect, which states, “I promise to do my best to treat everyone fairly; I promise to do my best to be kind to everyone--even if they are not like me; If I see someone being hurt or bullied I will report it to an adult; Everyone at school should be able to feel safe and happy at school; and I want our school to be No Place for Hate.”
Thank you for supporting our efforts to encourage all students to respect themselves and others!
“Perhaps the surest test of an individual's integrity is his refusal to do or say anything that would damage his self-respect.” ~Thomas S. Monson
¡Hola familias de LVES! ¡Este ha sido un mes divertido de aprender sobre la Semana del Respeto y la Cinta Roja! Nuestras actividades de la Semana del Listón Rojo son recordatorios divertidos para que los estudiantes se respeten y tomen buenas decisiones. En el nivel primario de jóvenes, nos enfocamos principalmente en entender que hay una diferencia entre las drogas buenas y malas, tomar decisiones positivas y hacer lo mejor para tener autoestima al cuidarnos bien. Los estudiantes también firmaron nuestro No hay lugar para la resolución de respeto al odio, que dice: “Prometo hacer todo lo posible para tratar a todos de manera justa; Prometo hacer todo lo posible para ser amable con todos, incluso si no son como yo; Si veo que alguien está siendo lastimado o intimidado, lo reportaré a un adulto; Todos en la escuela deberían poder sentirse seguros y felices en la escuela; y quiero que nuestra escuela no sea un lugar para el odio ".
¡Gracias por apoyar nuestros esfuerzos para alentar a todos los estudiantes a respetarse a sí mismos y a los demás!
"Quizás la prueba más segura de la integridad de un individuo es su negativa a hacer o decir algo que dañe su autoestima.” ~Thomas S. Monson
