Proud to be ARHS
Proud to be Diverse:
1) My friends and I have different beliefs, yet we recognize our differences, discuss them, and move past them.
2) When I moved to this school, I was able to meet new friends from different races and cultures.
Proud to be Inclusive:
1) I saw someone sitting alone at lunch and I asked them to come over and sit with me and my friends. I introduced them to everyone, included them in the conversation, and said they were welcome to sit with us whenever.
2) I was in charge of an extracurricular activity and I made an effort to include students with a wide variety of interests, abilities, and skills.
3) I came out to my friends and they accepted me without question.
Proud to be Accountable:
1) I hurt someone else because of the things I said. I apologized to them and will make an effort to be aware of the effect my words can have on other people.
2) I made a joke that went too far. I noticed that I made someone feel embarrassed so I apologized for offending them.
Proud to be Upstanding:
1) I overheard a conversation during which offensive/hurtful words were spoken. I stepped in and told them that the words they were using were unacceptable and unkind.
2) I saw someone purposely spill another student’s lunch. I witnessed another student kindly ask that student to pick up the food and remind them that someone else would have to clean it up if they didn’t.
3) A friend was threatening to hurt himself. I told his parents even though it could have cost our friendship.
4) I did not agree with a teacher and I wrote to the teacher and expressed my opinion.
Proud to be Supportive:
1) I saw someone struggling to understand the work. I saw another student explaining and helping them. This reassured me that whenever I am confused, I can ask for help without feeling embarrassed.
2) I saw a friend who looked like they were having a hard day, so I talked to them and gave them a hug.
3) I see students who may be upset about many different issues, and I see teachers take time to listen and help out. They treat “different kinds” of students with equal respect and kindness.
