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
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.
