Week of Respect
Sept. 30 - Oct 4
Woodbury Middle School is participating in the “Week of Respect” to launch a yearlong effort to enhance a safe and respectful learning environment. Below are some activities we will be participating in this week as well as some things you can do on your own.
• Morning Announcements - Positive messages, quotes, and stories about “respect” will be shared during morning announcements.
• Respect Tree - A tree will be created on the wall outside of the Dean’s Office
Day of choice during 6th period: Write suggestions on each leaf on how to “Be an Upstander.” Pin the suggestions to the tree on the wall outside of the Dean’s Office
“Get Your Blue On” Day - All week long student organizations and administrators will promote the culminating activity of “Get your Blue On.” Get the entire school to wear blue on Friday, October 4, 2019, to show their commitment to being an upstander.
Let your friends know why you’re going “BLUE” using
