What is Responsibility?
Responsibility is “taking ownership of my thoughts, words, and actions.” This trait is essential for becoming a healthy, happy, and productive person and it is the basis for a free and civil society where each person does what he or she is expected to do.
Responsibility begins with “little things” like taking care of your belongings, working with a good attitude, resolving conflicts peacefully, and owning up to mistakes.
Taking responsibility in these “little things” prepares students for greater opportunities in the future!
What is Integrity?
Integrity is a term used to describe a person's level of honesty, moral commitments, and willingness to do what's right.
Having integrity is detrimental to almost every aspect of our lives. Acting with integrity means being honest and acting with morals even when nobody's watching or even when they are. Having integrity in school and in your relationships, can prove to be quite successful even if sometimes it may not feel like the right thing to do. Sometimes the truth can be hard to face, however, in the end being honest and having integrity is important to build relationships, or end them, if this is what is best for all parties involved. In school, it’s important to act with integrity because school is the perfect place to grow and challenge yourself.
