WATERLOO HIGH SCHOOL
March 3, 2021
Students: Can you spell R...E...S...P...E...C...T? If you can spell it, can you show it? This month the Renaissance Student of Character attribute will be RESPECT. Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they're different from you or you don't agree with them. Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing. Respect doesn't have to come naturally – it is something you learn. Have you learned this all-important lesson? Do you show respect for others AND yourself? If so, then this is your month.
This upcoming Friday is Student Council's first 'Festive Friday' dress up day. Come to school and join in Zoom decked out in your best Hawaiian attire! School dress code applies. Send pictures to email@example.com.
