Respect & Responsibility

At Labor School we believe in 8 core values. During this schoolyear we are emphasizing two of them: Respect and Responsibility.

Respect yourself
Respect others
Respect the school
Respect possessions

R-E-S-P-E-C-T: I always treat my friends like I hope they treat me

Respect: denotes both a positive feeling of esteem for a person or other entity (such as a nation or a religion), and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual qualities of the one respected (e.g., "I have great respect for her judgment"). It can also be conduct in accord with a specific ethic of respect. Rude conduct is usually considered to indicate a lack of respect, disrespect, whereas actions that honor somebody or something indicate respect.

Confucius: "Respect yourself and others will respect you"

RESPONSIBILITY: Do what you're supposed to do; Responsibility is following through!

Responsibility: The obligation to carry forward an assigned task to a successful conclusion. Every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty. A person has moral obligations in certain situations. Society generally holds people responsible for their actions, and will say that they deserve praise or blame for what they do
