We are excited to share that we will be using a program called PurposeFull People this year. It is all about helping schools
weave simple, powerful, relatable content into everything happening at school and beyond! It includes a huge library of practical resources and activities to help effectively teach a wide variety of traits that we know help make students more successful in their academics and in their lives outside of school.

Character Trait of the Month: Respect

This month we’re talking about the character trait of Respect. The dictionary defines it as the value of admiring another person for who they are and what they do. The definition we are using in class is:

Respect: seeing good in people and things (and treating them with care).

Respect is both a perspective and a practice. What does it mean to “see good” in people? Oftentimes this requires us to learn more about who they are, where they come from, and why they believe and act the way they do. Respect is about understanding people! Respect is also about action; how we speak to and treat one another (and ourselves) respectfully is a constant practice.

Family Letters

The PurposeFull People Team will provide family letters related to each trait. Please click the appropriate grade level link below to download the family letter for this month's trait. Each letter has some great conversation starters, activities to pursue, and some challenges (“PurposeFull Pursuits!”) that you are welcome to look at and try out with your family. Some of the activities/challenges were designed for use prior to COVID-19. Please use wisdom when selecting activities and ensure you and your family are practicing current CDC guidelines.
