As part of the year-long Civility Project, students are introduced to elements of "Considerate Conduct", one element each week. They are encouraged in positive behavior, social skills and community caring. Parents are exhorted to talk about the ideas at home and to "catch" their children using the principles. Many have remarked upon students' improved attention to parents, teachers and other students.
