Chaparral High School is taking part in the Week of Respect – a week dedicated to educating students and teachers alike on the definition of respect and how to act.

Governor Brian Sandoval established Week of Respect on Sept. 5 and will take place annually from Oct. 2 to 6,  where students are encouraged to support a safer learning environment.

At Chaparral, students were invited to sign a poster hanging on the windows of the cafeteria, supporting the notion of respect.

“Choosing the topic of respect, I believe, is a good thing,” Japanese teacher, Robert Blood said.

Some weren’t aware of the week, but felt it was an important thing to highlight.

“Respect means showing love for oneself and showing love towards others,” Blood said.

So what exactly defines respect?

Respect is “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”

There are various definitions of respect according to different people, and people may have a perceived definition of it. By bringing it to attention during this week, it encourages the school community to come up with a definition that’s common.

“Various awareness weeks are always good because it either has the tendency to remind people or educate people about various issues,” Blood said.

One of the main focuses of Week of Respect is the focus on not judging others and bully awareness. For example, SOL Club spent time during its meeting Wednesday to discuss respect and bullying.

“Bullying is at an all-time high but luckily we have a school that enforces no bullying and has a support system,” junior Kathleen Morala said.

Students are encouraged to wear blue on Friday and share it on social media with the hashtag  “#CCSDGetYourBlueOn.” Students and teachers should spread the word and take the pledge to be an upstander.
