September Character Trait: RESPECT

Respect is showing others they are important by what you say or do and is shown in many ways every day. We can show respect to adults, each other, our school, our country and the earth. Respect is a very important part of any relationship. For more information on respect click here, then discuss with your family ways that you can show respect at home, school, work, and in the community.
