Character Development  

The middle school is committed to helping our students cultivate the skills and decision-making processes to develop positive character traits. Character is citizenship, which is respect for people and property - yours and others. Character is your reputation.  Character is caring about people.  When in a music show, a sports group, or when you are just passing through, show good Character.   Whatever you do and say, always conduct yourself in a positive manner. Teachers, aides, secretaries, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and custodians have all been hired by the school district with the intention of helping you to become a respectful, successful citizen.  You, as soon and as often as possible, should be demonstrating good character through your appropriate words and deeds.  If you do make a mistake, small or large, you should know that this is part of growing up and building character.  The best thing that you can do is to apologize and correct your error as quickly as possible.

 

School Citizenship

You are entering a period in which you will be expected to accept more and more responsibility for your own behavior.  We know that boys and girls of middle school age have a tendency to be active and outgoing. We believe that you have developed a good sense of right and wrong.  You are one of many students in our building and your behavior must reflect your good judgment and a consideration for others.  While we rely on you to accept responsibility for your own positive behavior, your teachers will not hesitate to remind you when it appears that you have not been thoughtful.  Your teachers and counselors will work with you to help you develop responsibility and to assist you when you need it. We hope that you will help in maintaining the standards of conduct and school effort for which our Oxford students have earned their fine reputation.
