OUR STUDENT COUNCIL SCHOOL STORE IS OPEN OVER LUNCH ON THE FOLLOWING WEDNESDAYS: MARCH 8, 15 and 22.
As a staff, we have chosen a focus on manners and respect as part of our school improvement plan for this school year. Mr. Myers will be using lessons from Manners of the Heart curriculum each week during morning assemblies. Manners of the Heart was founded to help students become respectful children who grow up to become respectful adults. We will post our themes on this school website with some suggestions on how you can reinforce those themes at home.
This Week's Theme: Telephone Manners (Mr. Myers talked to the students about how to use the phone respectfully). Here are some of the things you can reinforce and practice at home.....
* Be friendly when you answer the phone.
* Speak slowly and clearly.
* Answer the phone by saying "Hello? (Last Name) residence" and not "Yeah".
* Speak to the person who is calling (unless you do not know him or her)
* If the caller asks for someone else in your family, say, "Hold on, please, while I go get him or her."
* Walk the phone to the person the caller requested; do not yell for him or her.
* Always give your full attention to the person you are talking to on the phone. Focus on what the other person is saying. You might be asked to take a message and if you are not giving them your full attention, you just might miss some of the important information that is being told to you.
* Always give privacy to a person who is talking on the phone. Do not interrupt them unless it is an emergency.
We also shared with the students that if they do not know the caller, and the caller asks personal questions, they must give the phone to an adult right away.
Reminding children of these rules will help them become more respectful of those they are speaking with on the telephone AND it will help them become more respectful of you while you are on the phone.
Thank you for your partnership in achieving our common goal of developing good manners in your child.
