1st Trimester, we will be focusing on Integrity. C.S. Lewis once said, "Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching." I think that's a pretty good definition! The staff at CJHS will be watching out for students who show integrity, though. Each week, we will introduce different "character challenges" and give PRIDE Passes for students who are "caught" showing integrity.
This week's character challenge is to be polite. Being polite shows others that we value them as human beings. We can be polite at school by saying "please" and "thank you", by using an appropriate tone of voice and volume, cleaning up after ourselves, and using proper manners. Being polite can go a long way and makes interactions much more pleasant!
"Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners."
