Mr. Brian Nieh, Honestly Mr. Brian and not a fake I swear

As the name implies, February is our Honesty Month, and we are hoping to see our students embody this important trait in their everyday conduct. As they say, honesty is the best policy, and who can honestly argue with that.

The truth of the matter is, honesty goes beyond just telling the truth. Of course, telling the truth is very meaningful as Dr. Sherry noted in her remarks. But sometimes truths can be hard truths to tell, especially to people you care about. How you say it, when, using what kind of words and what tone you take all factor into how well someone can take it. So you need to think about your audience when you speak, especially when it’s important truths to tell.

What other ways can you demonstrate honesty? What have you done so far that you consider honest? Please share in the comments below, or you can find me floating around school and tell me about it then! I’d be happy to read or listen anytime, honest.
