Dear Mill Pond Students and Families,

I am excited to write to you about our Key Value of the month, which is Integrity. Please take a minute to turn and talk about what integrity means to you… At Mill Pond, the definition of integrity is being honest with oneself and others at all times.  Doing the right thing even when you think nobody is watching. Showing integrity is a choice! There is a big difference between knowing the right thing to do and actually doing it. I feel very lucky to work at Mill Pond where character education is so important. I see and hear examples of students and staff showing integrity every day! Please turn and talk about the examples of things that you have done or seen that demonstrates integrity…… At Mill Pond, people turn in things that others have lost, rather than keeping it for themselves. Students admit to mistakes or bad choices and want to fix them. I see students making sure that others get a chance to catch the ball in football or get a turn to kick the ball in kickball, or invite someone to sit with them at lunch when a peer appears to be alone.   

What are you going to do today to show your integrity? Remember integrity is doing the right thing even when you think nobody is watching!
