This Week At Soleado 11/18-11/22

Character Counts Pillar For The Month: Fairness.

What Is Fairness?
•Fairness implies that each one of us should follow
a standard of rightness without regard to our own
personal feelings or inclinations.
•Fairness implies freedom from prejudice.
•Fairness also implies impartiality about any side.
•The moral obligations of fairness are almost always
associated with the exercise of a person’s power to
render judgments that give benefits to or impose
burdens on other persons.
Fairness is concerned with actions, processes,
and consequences that are morally right,
honorable, and equitable.
In essence, fairness establishes moral standards
for decisions that affect others.
Fair decisions are made in an appropriate manner,
based on appropriate criteria.
The Principles of Fairness
•Treat all people in a fair, just, and impartial way,
based on their merits and abilities.
•Handle all essentially similar situations consistently.
•Make all decisions on appropriate criteria, without
undue favoritism or improper prejudice.
•Promptly and voluntarily correct personal and
institutional mistakes and improprieties.
•Do not take unfair advantage of people’s mistakes
or ignorance.
•Fully consider the rights, interests, and perspectives
of all persons involved or affected.


This Tuesday Nov. 19th, the directories will be bound, sorted and eventually distributed.  We need 2-4 parents to help bind the directories on their premises between 8:30 - 10:30 A.M.  We can meet at school before we go to Rancho Del Mar High School to do this.  If we have more people, we can actually sort the directories into classes as we go and be done with the whole thing by 11:00.  Many hands make light work.  (The printers have their hands full, printing other directories and cannot do the binding.)  Later we will add the PTA memberships to each directory before they are sent to the classrooms.

Don't forget to check out our "SHOP FOR SOLEADO" link to find out how you can raise money for our school. There are so many ways to PASSIVELY raise money while you do your routine shopping. Why not raise money for our suns while holiday shopping this year! You can even share the online box tops site with your family members to help!!
