What does RESPECTING OTHERS look like?

Make eye contact.

If you win, do not brag; if you loose, do not show anger.

If you are asked a question in a conversation, ask a question in return. (“How are you?” “Well thank you. How about you?”)

Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough and say excuse me.

Always say thank you when given something.

Surprise others with random acts of kindness.

Greet visitors and make them feel welcome.

When meeting new people, shake hands and repeat their name.

If someone drops something and you are close to it, pick it up.

Hold the door for people rather than letting it close on them.

If someone bumps into you, say excuse me, even if it was not your fault.

During an assembly, do not speak or call out to friends.

On escalators, stand to the right, walk on the left.

Never cut in line.

No talking in a movie theater during the movie.
