Grade 7 Enjoys Respect Activity

Students share activity in class

For their recent Spirit Week, Schalmont Middle School students enjoyed a lesson on respect as part of the No Place for Hate initiative.

School Counselor Mrs. Romano visited 7th grade science classes where students participated in an activity where they were challenged to identify a situation in which respect was demonstrated.

“Students engaged in a discussion on what respect is, what it looks like, what it feels like, discussed empathy and had the opportunity to share their own experiences,” explained Mrs. Romano.

Some examples students shared included “A 6th grader fell in the hallway and several students ran to help pick up their things” and “Our class was respectful to the substitute teacher and didn’t talk over him during instruction”.
