Word of the Week
Courtesy is the act of having excellent manners. Someone who is courteous is extra helpful and always looking out for the benefit of others. A courteous person lends a helping hand to those who need it, whether it is helping mom and dad with the groceries or letting someone sit in your seat while you stand. Courtesy includes helping mom and dad clean your room and up the dishes after dinner. Offering to do favors for others and being generous with your time and kindness are also ways that you can be courteous.

If you demonstrate courtesy this week, have your mom or dad write you a note about how you showed great courtesy and you can receive an extra stripe on your belt at class.
