CITIZENSHIP in SRSD
A Celebration of Community Spirit!
June 24, 2014
Citizenship in our
students’ words…
“I hope this hair goes to someone my age and it will make them smile
as big as I did after I cut mine off! I really want to make the planet be
happy”
Mackenzie Waddell
“ My definition of citizenship is any person or group of people who
respect all things around them and strive for positive change in their
community.”
Georgia Dalke
“ It’s about being involved in your community, being respectful to
others, taking care of the environment, being a good role model and
working towards creating a better and healthier community”
Kaylene Blackwood
“ we should always be the nice person. Strive to be the better person.
Reach out to someone and help them if they are struggling…it’s
about your behavior and your actions to the world..”
Emily Lohr
“Citizens are never selfish and are always thinking of others because
citizens are not just one person alone, we are all members of a
community.”
Zander Wells
“ I hope that people learn how to be a better person by being fair, kind
and helpful. All those things make everyone’s day and the world a
better place. I couldn’t imagine being any other way and hope to
be this way forever.!”
Cynthia De Oliveira
“ I am a team player and I like to volunteer because I like to help
people. I want to make our school safer and a better place for
students, staff and parents.”
Tony Leclerc
“ When someone donates a handful of time, the difference made is
tremendous and it shapes a community for the better while the
experiences improve the person who donated the time.
Volunteering is what makes a community because it brings people
together to work on a goal.”
Sydney Parker
“ I want to be someone that inspires others to become more involved in
their community and in the world. I love the feeling of knowing
that I helped someone in need and I made a difference…”
Courtney Wray
“
“ This year I have joined the newly formed Gay Straight Alliance in
our school. I helped support those who don’t know who to talk
about their personal choices in their own life. Peers in my school
feel it’s time to come out with who they really are and I am here to
support their choices and help them shoulder the burden to make it
easier on them!
RJ Couture-Wiens
Recycling…even though it is disgusting and smelling at times, we
do it for the environment. Everyone should be recycling in
schools!”
Recycle Everyway Team
“ A good citizen shows respect, honor and gives equal treatment to
everyone. Helping the elderly and young children are important in
being a good citizen. A good citizen is a person who takes his or
her time to help others!”

Last word….
"There’s a radical – and wonderful – new idea
here… that all children could and should be
inventors of their own theories, critics of
other people’s ideas, analyzers of evidence,
and makers of their own personal marks on
the world. Its an idea with revolutionary
implications. If we take it seriously.“
- Deborah Meier
