Citizenship means being an active member of your community. (Community can be your; world, country, state, town, school or neighborhood) Citizenship is learning the importance of contributing to school and community. It is having compassion and showing kindness through serving and helping others.
Our schools and communities are better places when everyone contributes by serving and helping one another.
Citizenship – How to teach it and how to show it
Always model showing kindness and helping others.
Encourage your children to help you pick up trash in your neighborhood, donate non-perishable foods to a food bank, or donate old clothing and toys.
Take your child with you when you vote.
Attend community events together – such as parades or the neighborhood farmers market.
Together, volunteer for a community service project that focuses on helping others.
Help your child learn to give something back to the community where you live.
