Good Citizens

… do their share to make their school and community better.
… cooperate.
… stay informed and vote.
… are good neighbors.
… obey laws and rules and respect authority.
… protect the environment.


Citizenship is about making whatever organization you’re a part of better because you’re there. Ask your student(s) questions like:

How are the Scouts better because you’re a member?
How is your family better because you’re in it?
How is your sports team better because you’re a team mate?
What strengths do you bring to a group?
What areas of growth do you need to work on?
How would Westwood be different without you?
How is Westwood better because you’re here?
Good citizens do more than just show up, they contribute in a positive way wherever they go.
