This year, some enthusiastic parents have taken the creative helm for our Cougar Word-of-the-Month assemblies. Host Harrison Pollack and the Crocker Cougar highlighted what some 5th graders said about how they show respect to their teachers and other students. He also led the whole school in reciting a new chant he wrote. Feel free to practice the chant at home!
Is it too much to expect,
That we use our intellect,
That we’re honest, and direct,
That we treat each other with respect?
Do you want to make a bet,
That you’ll make somebody fret,
If that person doesn’t get,
Treated with respect?
A ballerina does a pirouette,
And a pilot flies a jet,
Teachers like to correct,
Let’s treat them all with respect!
If you’re a giant, or a tiny speck,
If you’re wild, or if you’re a pet,
You should never, ever forget,
Everybody needs respect!
