Focus of the Day In the previous weeks we learned about respect, responsibility and citizenship. Respect is important because if you show respect people will show you respect in return and you can also have more friends. You will also need responsibility because it will help you get a job and irresponsible people tend to get a lot of detentions. However, if you do have responsibility you will have honors classes and have a family with a good job. Lastly, you will need citizenship because you will succeed in things you try your best at.
