Assets in Action: Good manners start at home

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Today we focus on improving school climate and I will spend the day with the Aspen Tiger sixth graders, presenting the Change of Heart program.
I believe that one of the most important things we need to do is to make every school a safe place to learn.
We present this program at every elementary school and at Los Alamos Middle School for all new students to the district.
Often, the stories shared by students who come from other schools, is astonishing.
Just yesterday at Cookies and Conversation, one young man spoke of life at school before coming to the Los Alamos Public Schools District.
The fact that the classrooms are calm, the teachers are engaged and students don’t rule should be a standard, but I’m confused why the whole country doesn’t have the same standard.
As families, we should teach our kids to be nice, tolerate others, do unto others — or just ignore someone they don’t get along with at school.
I assume the hard part is that not everyone comes from the same home, doesn’t have parents that support differences, doesn’t think you should love your neighbor as you love yourself, or maybe even to love yourself in the first place.
We expect the schools to be able to accomplish the goals we don’t set forth in our own homes.
