Our character education word of the month for December is Obedience. Obedience is doing my duty with a good attitude. Obedience is not just about rules, regulations, and punishment. It is really about cooperation with one another in order to have a safe and orderly school, home, and community. Think of the peace and freedom you enjoy when neighbors respect one another and obey the law-and the chaos that follows when there is no law and order. Obedience makes teamwork and cooperation possible by clarifying your duty and doing it to the best of your ability.

Each week, we honor individual students as “Student of the Week," because they show obedient behaviors. CONGRATS to our weekly winners! This week’s winners are Milo Reeves, Kenya Mahone, Jay’den Sheffield, Sophie Schlegel, Cody Bryant, and Nasir Terry.
