Our STAR student program is a program where each month ONE student from each class will be recognized as the student who has done an exemplary job of displaying the character trait of the month! Each character trait chosen is from the Character Education Program (Capturing Kids Hearts) that is a part of our curriculum.
Integrity is the reason that we make the decisions that we do. Integrity is doing the right thing when no one else is looking. Integrity is doing the right thing even when you will not be noticed or recognized. Integrity is making the decision to do what is right and be a person who stands up for what is right. Integrity is being willing to tell others what they are doing is not right even when they may not agree with you.
Are YOU as an adult a person of integrity? You can only expect your students to live from a place of integrity if you are a person of integrity. They are watching you and look up to you as role models even when you don’t think they see and hear you. Your students cannot rise above the constraints you as a teacher have. Integrity is a wonderful place to continually return our focus to.
Children are not born with integrity or the behaviors we associate with it, including humility, social responsibility, and the courage to stand up for what they believe is right. It is derived through a process of cultural socialization—influences from all spheres of a child’s life.
