National Etiquette Week is the national recognition of etiquette and protocol in all areas of life. The week will raise awareness of all people to act with courtesy, civility, kindness, respect and manners as well as rally people to act with good manners in their everyday lives.
Inflammatory comments and jokes may amount to harassment or bullying charges, and are, of course, inappropriate, as is plagiarism, cheating, lying, and stealing. In addition, the school rules include several smaller points that boil down to a matter of courtesy and respect to others. Examples include removing your hat while indoors and forgoing public displays of affection that are overly physical or explicit. Keeping your feet off chairs or tables and picking up trash around your work area when leaving may not be written down, but are definite signs of consideration towards others.
Stop by the library to look at the famous book on etiquette by Emily Post (Emily Post's Etiquette, shelved upstairs at 393 POS), or read more at emilypost.com. We also encourage you to relax, breathe, and smile at people around you!
