Respect For All

Dear Families,

“Respect for All” week  will be taking place from Monday, February 12, 2018 to Thursday, February 15, 2018. Each day a different activity will be taking place.

Monday, February 12 : Backwards Shirt

Students will wear their shirts backwards to show that they are always supportive of one another. They ‘have eachothers’ backs’ .

Tuesday, February 13: Show we are a team against bullying by wearing your BSI t-shirt or a yellow or blue t-shirt.

Wednesday, February 14: Wear Red in the name of love, respect, friendship and respect.

Thursday, February 15: Wear Orange to stand together against bullying and are united in kindness, acceptance and inclusion. Every Child Matters.

Today we spoke about what ‘respect’ means and how we can show it throughout the day. The words in bubbles are what the students felt respect means to them! This is something we are continuously learning and practicing.

Please see the image below for the daily schedule of what will be happening on each day. We will also be reminding the students of the daily events.


Have a great week,

Ms. Mathis and Ms. Anne
