Eau Claire (WQOW) – Students at DeLong Middle School are learning more about in respect this week while having a little fun.
It’s called Respect Week, and each day has a different theme focusing on respectful behaviors. “I think it’s important to be respectful because then the school runs smoother and everyone will have a better time,” said Lillian Kufner, an eighth-grader at DeLong Middle School.
Monday was hat day, which was all about being on time.
School officials say they have high expectations of students, and if the kids model good behavior, they’ll be rewarded. The goal is for kids to focus on being respectful students, classmates, and family members.
“By enjoying respect week and highlighting the different areas that surround the word respect, it makes the whole school year. It kind of sets the tone for a successful school year,” said DeLong Middle School Dean of Students Lars Long.
Some other dress up days include crazy sock day with a focus on following directions, and jersey day, which is aimed at doing your best.
