What's Happening

Respect for all Week


Flag Friday
As we close our respect for all week, we ask you to remember to treat each other respectfully, stand up for what is right and be kind to one another. And keep these words of Harold Kushner, a notable American Rabbi, in your mind, "When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world."

Students are encouraged to wear an article of clothing, a flag or color, representing their culture.

    Respect for all Week Begins Tuesday, February 9th and ends Friday, February 12th


    Mott Hall's code for living: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Integrity, Compassion, Generosity, and Fairness, emphasizes the importance of hosting a safe environment, respecting  diversity, demonstrating kindness and forgiveness as well as treating each other fairly and respectfully. These values are reinforced throughout the year, but highlighted specifically during Respect for All Week. During this week-long event and through various activities, students are reminded to respect diversity and be kind and forgiving so that a safe and supportive learning environment is demonstrated
     and maintained.
