Starting The Year Off Right

The entire school came together this morning for our first “family meeting.”

Our principal, Ms. An, reviewed the different ways that we can help to make our school a safe, caring, and supportive place to learn and grow. She read the South Grove Constitution and everyone joined her in reciting the two most important rules at South Grove:

  • Be Respectful 
  • Be Responsible

Then we discussed how this can look slightly different in different areas of the school. Ms. An reminded us that our very own Grover is featured in posters which are displayed throughout the building. These colorful posters remind us what being respectful and responsible looks like in the hallway, classroom, playground. etc. Next, she reviewed our K-PRIDE motto (Kindness, Patience, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Empathy).

Finally, she challenged us: Which of these important words should always come first? Nobody was fooled!

Everyone knows KINDESS always comes FIRST!
