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
