Six Pillars of Character
Pillar #2: Be Respectful
One way to demonstrate that you value someone is showing them that their time is valuable. Nothing says this better than by being on time. Nobody likes to be kept waiting, and always being late shows disrespect for the other person’s time.
Students: It’s Celebrate My Drive time. To help our school win $100, 000 take out your cell phone during the morning announcements and make a pledge to drive safely at celebratemydrive.com. Last year we walked away with $25,000 and we were one spot away from becoming a $100,000 winner. Remember 2N2! Drive safely!
Students: Interact meets every Monday in E3 at lunch. Come join us and learn about community service events you can be a part of!
