This month students will learn what commitment is and what it looks like at school and outside of school. Students will learn how they can show loyalty toward their peers, teachers, and families by following directions and being trustworthy. Students will see that, regardless of our unique characteristics that make us different, we are actually quite similar. They will learn to appreciate these differences and celebrate one another. As students work through issues that will arise throughout their day they will be encouraged to think of others first, be honest, and perform random acts of kindness.
