Being respectful is an important social skill and a key ingredient to success in life.  Students who respect others do not bully, a behavior that exhibits total disrespect toward others. All children need to be taught to show respect as they learn what respect looks, sounds, and feels like. Observing respectful behavior in adults is also important as we develop and maintain an atmosphere of respect in our schools.
