It is finally September, and while it may not feel like the fall season quite yet, we know it is coming, and we are greatly looking forward to it at camp. School has started, football season has started, pumpkin latte season has hit the coffee chains…it is in the air!
As you’re getting back into the swing of things at home and gearing up for all-things-fall, we wanted to connect some dots for you on how you can take our new Honor Code home with you this year. We rolled out our Honor Code to our campers this summer, and throughout the summer, we loved talking about the different elements in devotions, Morning Assemblies, church services, and more.
To kick off this fall season, we are going to be talking specifically about how to take the Honor Code with you to school. How do you live out these traits and characteristics in your classes, with your friends, and to your teachers? We are giving you some ideas below.
Throughout this school year, we hope that Greystone girls are making a difference by being kind, seeing the good, and taking responsbility for their actions. Join us!
I think we talked about kindness more than any other trait this summer, mainly because it was also our theme verse…to “be kind.” So how do you show kindness at school?
At school, it is easy to get caught up in the rumor-mills or the latest trends, and often it may make you weary or hesitant about other people. Even with your own friends, it can be easy to assume the worst in a situation instead of the best. How can you see the good this year at school?
We talk about taking of ownership of our actions quite a bit at camp, and often in many different ways. We talk about keeping your bunk clean for your cabin’s daily inspection and showing up to flag on time to earn points for your team. You take ownership when you help clean up the pickleball courts after playing, instead of leaving trash and paddles on the ground. So, how do you take ownership at school?
What are other ways you can think of to live out our Honor Code at school? Comment below and let us know! A great way to remember to think about the Honor Code is to hang it in your locker or put it in a notebook you use often. You can hang up the version we gave you this summer, or print out a copy to use. We will be posting some other ways to take the Honor Code home with you throughout the fall, so check back in soon!
