Hello students, welcome back to a new school year!  I hope you make 2016/2017 the best year of your life. It is our school’s 25th anniversary and I’m very excited.

It is always a pleasure to write this blog and to be able to teach  you things that will make your life more rewarding and rich.

This month’s value is POLITENESS.

Being polite should be your first goal, because  behaving well towards others will bring you much joy in life, remember that  “everything that goes around, comes around.”

By being polite towards others you express your true self. People are always pleased with someone who treats them well. And when you grow up and go out into the world to find a job, courtesy will always win!

Please have a classroom discussion about the following and learn as much as you possibly can, then be the greatest example to others, not only your classmates, and teachers, but to your own family and friends:

  1. How do you feel when others ignore you? Many times, as Principal and Founder of BAI, I have met students in the hallways or outside of school and instead of saying Hello to me, they ignore me. This makes me feel very sad, indeed.
  2. How do you feel if your standing in line and someone pushes you aside to take your place? Do you think they are treating you with respect?
  3. How do you feel  when you give something to others and they don’t even say “Thank You?”
  4. How do you feel when someone tells you to give them something without saying “Please?”
  5. How do you feel when someone “shoves you around,” or passes in front of you without saying: “Excuse me?”
  6. How do you feel when someone laughs at you, not WITH  you?
  7. How do you feel when someone screams at you instead of talking to you?
  8. How do you feel when someone calls you “names?”
  9. How do you feel when someone does not take your feelings into consideration?
  10. And finally, what can YOU do to receive RESPECT from others?

    Hi Miss Lilian:

    We are very happy to read your blog again.

    “Treat people how you want to be treated”, as Daniel said and we agree, if we want respect we need to give respect too.

    Thank you for sharing, we loved the rap too.

    With love 4A and Miss Addis

    And punctuality!

    Respect other people’s time. Good manners means showing a respect for other’s time.

    Can you tell it is the beginning of the year and some of us are in s-l-o-w-m-o-t-i-o-n? Tee hee.

    Thank you Miss Lilian, it was a great way to start of the Value of the Month.
    Children are starting to say “Good Morning” or “Hello” to teachers that they see outside of their classroom. They seem very inspired to continue using “Good Manner Words” 🙂

    Everybody says “Hello”

    Thank you for your blog, I agree with all of your words, specially with the idea that being polite is not only saying please and thank you, it is also being aware of and respect other people’s feeling.
    I send you a big hug!!!!

    Hi, we are so happy being back.
    We have been talking about this for the last couple of weeks. These 2 little words embrace so much. I believe the children didn’t really understood the importance a few nice words or a big smile could make. Now they are aware and we are practicing them all day long.
    Hope you can tell the difference when you come back, we have every morning when we open doors we hear “good morning” and “thank you”
    The children send their love.
