Value of the Month – Honesty

By All School News

Honesty is our value of the month for March.

Honesty is when you speak the truth and act truthfully. Honesty means more than not lying; an honest person doesn’t do things that are morally wrong.

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.” ― Spencer Johnson

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” ― William Shakespeare, All’s Well That Ends Well

“We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.” ― Michelle Obama
