‘Stop, Look, Listen and Do’ at APW Elementary School

“Talking about respect never goes out of style,” Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Elementary School Intermediate Principal Michael McAuliff said during a recent character education assembly at the school.

Pictured Altmar-Parish-Williamstown fourth grade students Kody Hopkinson, left, Alyana Ruffos, middle, and Gage Merrills demonstrate what they do to show respect towards teachers, bus drivers, guest visitors, and other adults at their school – They STOP what they are doing when an adult is speaking; They LOOK and LISTEN to what the adult is asking or telling them; and they DO the right thing.

McAuliff and Primary Principal Dee Penoyer hosted a character education assembly for each grade level at the school where they discussed how creating a respectful environment can positively impact learning and each student’s success in school.

Students were also encouraged to share some of the ways that they demonstrate respect at the school.
