  Counselor's Corner

September's Theme: RESPECT

ACA we are gaining Mindsets and Behaviors that foster RESPECT through Character Education which includes Bonus Hour, Classroom Lessons, and Girls Garden. 

"Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet:  O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect" - The Holy Qur'an verse 33:56.

Respect is an attitude of honoring oneself and others and caring about their rights.  Being respectful is reflected in the courtesy with which we speak and act and treat one another.  Acting respectfully gives people the dignity they deserve.  Respect is behaving in a way which make life more peaceful and orderly for everyone - The Virtues Project.
