This month Lincoln School is focusing on the character trait- Respect. Respect is a way of treating or thinking about something or someone. If you respect your teacher, you admire him/her and treat him/her 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 want to emphasize to children that we treat our peers with respect too. In addition we are discussing how to respect “things,” as well as people. For example, we will work on being respectful of Lincoln School by cleaning up and taking care of the Woods. October 27th is our Day of Respect. Students and staff should wear Red on this day to show our commitment to treating our surroundings, community and families with respect.
