Current Values: Politeness, Manners, Courtesy, Neatness, Organization, Cleanliness

While manners are important year round and discussed on a daily basis, they are also highlighted in June through our Character Education program. Using manners such as saying please and thank you is an expectation we have of our children. We also ask children to use appropriate table manners by using a fork or spoon to eat our food, to wipe our hands and face using a napkin, and to throw away our plates and clean our area after we are done. As seen here, we know how to get messy on occasion and have some fun as well! J
