What is Citizenship?


Grade Three Curriculum


“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

– Mohandas Gandhi


Demonstrating good citizenship is being a person who is involved in trying to make the classroom, the playground, the school, the community, or the world, in general, a better place. Good citizens are always considering the needs of others.
