Counselors Corner

November Eagle of the Month Characteristics


Last month our Eagle of the month characteristic was determined; for November the Eagle of the Month characteristic is Respectful. We define being respectful as someone who is polite and kind. You are respectful when you show esteem or honor for someone or something. By demonstrating respect, we set high expectations for all students who attend our school. The character challenges of the month are:


• Demonstrate respect by being polite and kind to your teacher, faculty members, and your classmates


• Demonstrate respect by being considerate of other feelings


• Demonstrate respect by following the rules without being asked to do so


• Demonstrate respect by having manners- saying excuse me, please, thank you, and I’m sorry if we do something to someone on accident.
