Let's all try hard to make this a great school year.
Our character theme for the month of November is Responsibilty.
Here are some quotes pertaining to responsibility to talk about with your children:
The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.
As an Italian-American, I have a special responsibility to be sensitive to ethnic stereotypes.
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.
Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the high road to pride, self-esteem and personal satisfaction.
A sign of wisdom and maturity is when you come to terms with the realization that your decisions cause your rewards and consequences. You are responsible for your life, and your ultimate success depends on the choices you make.

Remember... we are building on September's theme: RESPECT.
If we all respect ourselves and others we will greatly reduce the number of problems that are sure to crop up in our lives if we don't follow simple rules of respect.
Remember, it's important to talk about the material your children are exposed to in the media and to give children an idea of what is acceptable and what is not. For more information on movie ratings visit www.commonsensemedia.org
