Expect Respect



November Traits: Students First/Kindess

DIA has a bulletin board that will feature the district's "Expect/Respect" monthly traits. Students are able to use sticky notes to write down examples of each trait that they observe in the school.

Ms. Tillman, our guidance counselor, and Ms. Capron, our Dean, met with classes to kick off the district's "Expect/Respect" Curriculum. There will be monthly themes to provide hands-on activities and discussions about the Expect Respect program.  Ms. Capron began with a visit to DIA's mainstreet to complete a coloring activity as part of a lesson on  being responsible listeners. Students discussed the qualities of a good listener and practiced them during their class discussions.
