Ins in Moe Bohannon The Oakes ~rnes Beginning in November the Oakes Elementary School will begin a program to bring Character Education to students in K-6. Each month, from November through May, will highlight a different theme. The administration and educators at the school are asking for the public's help, parents, businesses and everyone in the community. Here is how it will work. Each month will have a color assigned to it. The school is asking that as many people as possible wear that color on Friday of each week of the month. The educators are also asking that if you see a youngster who is showing the character traits for the month, give him or her a compliment and let the teacher and parents also know. November is for RESPECT and the color will be YELLOW. Treat each other with respect; follow the Golden Rule; be tolerant of difference; use good manners, not bad language; be considerate of others feelings; don't threaten, hit or hurt anyone; deal peacefully with anger, insults and disagreements. December is FAIRNESS, the color is ORANGE. Like dividing an orange equally to share. Play be the rules; take turns and share; be open-minded; listen to others; don't take advantage of others; don't blame others carelessly. January is TRUSTWORTHINESS, the color is BLUE. Be honest; don't deceive, cheat or steal; be reliable - do what you say you will do; have the courage to do the right thing; build a good reputation; be loyal - stand by your family, friends and country. February is for CARING and the color is RED - like a heart Be kind, compassionate and show you care; express gratitude; forgive others; help people in need. March is for RESPONSIBILITY and the color is GREEN. Do what your are supposed to do; persevere - keep on trying; always do your best; use self- control; be self-disciplined; think before you act - consider the consequences; be accountable for your choices. April is for CITIZENSHIP and the color is PURPLE. Do your share to make your school and community better; cooperate; get involved in community affairs; stay informed - vote; be a good neighbor; obey laws and rules; respect authority; protect the environment. May is for the MOST IMPROVED and the color will be the students' choice from the colors of the year and is based on their academics. Here is the bcst part. If you, yourself of any group has an idca on how to show to these students how these character attributes can hclp in thcir lives, contact the Elementary School and let them know. Thcy will bc glad to sec ifthcy can find a spot for you to makc your prcscntation. January lluough l)cccmbcr every year, the color is your choice, lk)r all of us to use the Golden Rulc - Do unto others as you will have them do unto you! Let us teach by example.
