What is Generation TEXAS?
Generation TX focuses on getting students thinking about their future and
the next steps that they can take toward college and career readiness.
Generation Texas connects us to each other and clarifies the steps we need to take on
the path to college and career education, from taking the right classes and
tests, to applying to colleges, and then finding the money to pay for
school. These students are what’s next for our state. They have the power
to become the most successful generation ever.


OCTOBER CHARACTER TRAIT

Responsibility
is being able to choose for oneself between right and wrong. It is being able to assume or carry out a duty. A responsible person is someone: you can count on, exercises self-control, does not procrastinate, works hard, sets a good example, keeps on trying, sets high goals, never gives up, pursues excellence, and is self-disciplined. A responsible person is also:  dependable, respectful, independent, accountable, punctual, conscientious, in charge, a team player, committed, and not a bully.       
    

                      

What is respect?

Respect is showing others that they are important by the way we talk and act towards them.

Respect is knowing that even though we are different, we all have the same rights.

Respect Yourself & Others

The Golden Rule

Always respect other people’s:

  • things/ property
  • ideas- even when we don’t agree with them
  • beliefs
  • feelings
  • dreams
  • differences

How Do You Show Respect?

  1. Say “please” and “thank you”
  2. Say “excuse me”-no pushing
  3. Say “I’m sorry”
  4. Share with others
  5. No name calling
  6. You can disagree with respect
  7. No bullying- Sealy ISD has zero tolerance for bullying
