Mrs. McVeigh’s Manners Themes of the Week Calling 911 and Respecting Differences

This week's Mrs. McVeigh's Manners Themes of the Week are Calling 911 and Respecting Differences.

Ask your child the reasons that you would call 911:

  • There is a fire.     
  • A tricky person is telling you to help him find his lost pet, when you are playing.     
  • A tricky person tries to get you to go into his car for any reason.
  • A person stops breathing.
  • A person is unconscious.
  • A person will not wake up.
  • A person bangs on your door and says he is the police, when you did not call a police officer.

What are three things to remember about Respecting People who are Different that you?

  1. Never stare at anyone who is different than you.
  2. Never make fun of someone’s differences.
  3. Give everyone a chance to be your friend.
