This week, our character challenge is to be an attentive learner. To be an attentive learner, we must give undivided attention, use body language to convey attention (eyes on speaker, body faced toward speaker, nod, etc.), provide feedback, and answer/ask questions. Students who are attentive learners this week will be given PRIDE Passes, which should be turned in at lunch for a prize. PRIDE Passes must be turned in by students in order to be eligible for the Indian Pride breakfast in October.

Last week, students were challenged to be polite. This week's character challenge is to be helpful. While in the cafeteria, I noticed a student go out of his way to open the door for his peer who had his hands full...that is so nice to see! There are many little things we can do each day to be helpful to one another. How will you be helpful today?

This week, CJHS started the Indian PRIDE program. Pride stands for people who have RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DETERMINATION, & EMPATHY. Each quarter, we will focus on one of the 4 PRIDE character traits. And, each week, we will have a character challenge that relates to the character trait. Students who display the character challenge trait will be given PRIDE passes. These passes can be turned in during lunch for a prize. In addition, students who turn in their PRIDE passes will be eligible for the PRIDE breakfast at the end of the quarter.
This quarter's trait is RESPECT. Respect is thinking and acting in a positive way towards yourself and other people. Acting respectfully shows others that you care about their feelings and well-being. This week's character challenge is to show respect through being polite. When we are polite and courteous of other people, we show them that we value them as human beings.
