Character Counts
This week we began a series of Character Commentaries focusing on the idea of respect. On Wednesday, Stella Fina introduced the concept and related a sampling of responses received by students from a verbal survey conducted on Monday during lunch (Meaning of Respect). Omar Monreal introduced a deeper dive into the meaning of respect, using the word as  an acronym to explain. R, to start with, stands for responsibility and realizing that our decisions do impact others (Respect as Responsibility). Follow the links to read the full commentary!
