This month Lincoln School is focusing on the hard character trait- respect. Respect is a way of treating or thinking about something or someone. If you respect your teacher, you admire her/him and treat her/him well. People respect others who are impressive for any reason, such as being in authority — like a teacher or police officer — or being an elder — like a grandparent. We also teach you to respect “things,” as well as people. For example, we work on being respectful of Lincoln School by cleaning up and taking care of the Woods.
“I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me… All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.” – Jackie Robinson
