Our February Character Matters focus is: Fairness. We want Don Mills students understanding how to manage themselves, think about their learning skills, and be good community members. We want students to understand why staff and other students want to have high standards for cleanliness in our classrooms and halls, use proper language and treat each other with thoughtful behaviours. Students should understand the difference between recycling and garbage, and not leave leftovers from lunch in the hallways. There is a school dress code, and a strong need to respect our classrooms and teachers and each other. Digital devices in class are not permitted by most teachers unless they are being used for specific class learning activities. So, choose to represent your own brand! Be a great role model, stay healthy, be positive, and try new things. Get exercise, make friends, eat well, set up a specific time and space to do homework, and take steps to learn to manage your stress. Be a great person. Everyone is welcome at Don Mills CI.
