The Upper School student representatives who make up the Honor Council took the floor today. Instead of reading dictionary definitions of honor, though, they demonstrated for the SMES community just how the process works. With the help of a "cheater" and a "concerned student" (wonderfully willing faculty sponsors - Latin and Spanish teachers by day), the girls unpacked the journey from bad choice to resolution. This peek behind the veil gave everyone a chance to understand that the Honor Code isn't just words on a plaque, but a way of living together in trust.
It's an honor thing ... and now you understand.
