“Be There” Initiative

These next few months we are placing a great importance of putting another person first.  We want to be there for others. How can we? Well, we can by:

  1. Look to help another when they need help.
  2. We can listen to our teachers and friends closely, and not be playing with things in our desk, or in our hands.
  3. We can listen without talking or arguing.  We can simply be there by quietly listening.

Today’s examples of “being there”:

  1. Brittany Birt – While outside on duty, she was running with the students in Kindergarten, playing tag.  She was “being there” for those students.
  2. Kent Harvey – is “being there” when he brings the kids who are being picked up, to their car to ensure they arrive safely to their parents.
  3. Sharon Gordon – came in early to create direction signs to demonstrate where parents in cars should drive.  This made drop off and pick up easier.  This is “being there”.
