Garden Elementary School, Tulare City School District

Pillar: Respect

Second-grade staff says, "Jamileh is respectful to her peers, teachers, and everyone she comes in contact with here at school. She waits until others are finished talking, she helps people in a kind way when they need direction, and accepts their differences. Jamileh does not join in with gossip and encourages others to get along. She will include people in games and checks to see if they are okay. Jamileh is respectful with the school equipment and other people's possessions. She exhibits the characteristics of respect when people are watching, but more importantly, she exhibits the characteristics when she doesn't realize people are watching."
