Today, we are launching what we call “The Respect Project.” For the next 8 weeks, we have set a goal that every student and employee understand respect, show respect and feel respected!!!! It’s a lofty goal and working towards it will be both fun and challenging.
Although we experience superior achievement on state and college entrance tests, we believe that school is more than math, science, history or reading. Today we are stopping to take a Day of R&R. R&R stands for Respect and Responsibility - our first two Wylie Way Core Values. On our Day of R&R, we want to give teachers and kids a chance to get to know one another and talk about respect. Throughout the next 8 weeks, we are also going to recognize students who demonstrate respectful and responsible behavior in our schools. We have a lot of great kids– and we want to celebrate them!
Here is where you can help. Take some time this week and talk to your own kids about respect and its importance on being a happy and healthy adult. Growing respectful and responsible adults - it’s the Wylie Way. Let’s cross this street together!
