[perfectpullquote align=”right” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]Schools today are called, not just to be places of academic learning, but places of social learning as well. The joys and sorrows of the playground, the social experiences we have as children can color our relationships for a life-time. — Kim John Payne[/perfectpullquote] At CWS, we strive for a balance between the sanctity of the individual and the norms necessary within any community. Teachers and staff treat each child with respect and kindness. The students in turn are expected to treat teachers, staff members, and their fellow classmates with respect and kindness.
Among those behaviors that defeat mutual respect and are thus inappropriate at school:
- foul language
- bullying and teasing
- hitting, biting, kicking, pushing, and the like
- running or rough play inside buildings
- shouting out, interrupting, or yelling inside buildings
