Habits of Mind - INTEGRITY

October 28, 2019
By Jennifer Baham | Teaching Principal

Welcome to the second quarter! This is a busy and rewarding time of year as teachers prepare report cards, parents look ahead to conferences, and students launch into new learning. 

INTEGRITY weaves through all of our SJCS Throughlines: Growing Believers, Healthy People, Active Learners, Effective Communicators, Collaborative Workers, Wise Decision Makers, Humble Servants, Responsible Stewards, and Engaged Citizens. Integrity means acting according to a sense of what is right and what is wrong. Exercising integrity helps us do the right thing in a reliable way. 

As Teaching Principal I see students, co-workers, and parents who choose integrity as a way of life. Here are some of the ways I have seen integrity in the past week:

  • A middle school student in my office this morning said, “I think I have the information you need to understand why I was sent here to see you.”
  • A co-worker shared her joy in seeing elementary students choose to clean up misplaced  tanbark to keep the playground looking great.
    (Editor's Note: She even snapped the picture of the responsible steward trio in this blog.)
  • A parent-teacher discussion on how to partner together in understanding a scenario and take next steps. 
  • An elementary student simply saying to a friend, “I am sorry. Will you forgive me?”
Tiger Talk: Questions For Your Family

Whether you're with your fellow Tigers at the dinner table or cruising home during your commute, take a few moments to explore these Tiger Talk questions. 

  • How do you know what is right and what is wrong?
  • Can you name a time when someone else in our family has made the right choice even when it was hard to do?
  • What is an area where you are struggling to know the right choice? Make the right choice?
