Last week, USD 407 celebrated students from all four buildings who were recognized for continually displaying the character trait for September- Respect. The celebration included a pizza luncheon at Simpson Elementary School and fun was had by all! The character trait for October is Responsibility. Be on the lookout for the students being recognized for that trait at the end of the month.
This year, RHS will be partnering with other schools in the district and recognizing two students each month who personify the character trait of the month. For September, our character trait was respect. We are excited to announce that Hannah Gideon and Mason Rohr received the most nominations and are the students being recognized! Our staff member who was recognized for displaying respect was Mr. Manabat. Below you will find snippets from each person's nominations to see how they display respect. Congrats to all! Hannah shows respect by listening to her peers and adults when they speak; waiting for her turn before doing things; always following directions; being honest and kind to others; actively helping others in the school; and asking questions in an appropriate manner. Mason is a bright young man who is respectful to all students regardless of their ability. He helps other students when asked. Mason is always polite and kind to everyone he interacts with and is a joy to be around. Mr. Manabat is always respectful in his interactions with students, parents, and co-workers. He takes pride in doing a good job and makes sure that those he interacts with are comfortable and feel respected.
