Principal's Message



PRINCIPALLY SPEAKING

Dear Parents,



Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.   Thomas Paine

RESPECT – One of our Community of Caring Values at Lookout Mt.

Respect denotes both a positive feeling of esteem for a person and also specific actions and conducts representative of that esteem. Respect can be defined as allowing yourself and others to do and be their best.

It is one of our Community of Caring values here at Lookout Mt. to create a mutually respectful atmosphere between all individuals involved within our school including administrators, teachers, staff members, students, parents, & visitors.

I feel it is always important to slow down and remember to treat others how you would like to be treated. Please take time out of your busy schedules to reflect and brainstorm with your child the importance of respect and what respectful interactions at school and within our community look like.

Respect at school looks like:

*Good Communication between staff and young people *Punctual time keeping

*Everyone is valued and has an opinion

*Respecting everyone’s point of view

*Good discipline

*Empathy

*Encouraging participation of everyone

*Acting in timely manner

*Acknowledging differences

*Good Behavior outside school – lunch time

* Representing the school

*Being kind

*Doing what you are asked

*Doing what teachers say without backchat

*Respect is 2 way – teachers that show respect get it back *Supporting those who are struggling with behavior issues 

*Being Inclusive

What did your child/family come up with?

 

Respectfully,

Mrs. Tricia H. Johnson

Principal
