Good Neighbor Campaign
This year we will be working as a community to create an environment where respect, honor, love, integrity, and empathy prevail, in order to prevent intimidation and/or mistreatment within the ECA community.
The biblical basis for the Good Neighbor Campaign is Luke 10:36-37:
“Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”
Our objectives for the Good Neighbor Campaign include:
- Making the ECA community aware of issues related to abuse and/or intimidation that help staff to recognize risk situations, as well as avoid, manage, and report them when necessary
- Infusing the ECA community with the values of respect, honor, love, integrity, and empathy
- Developing students’ interpersonal skills to effectively manage conflict situations, foster self-knowledge, and strengthen self-esteem
The Good Neighbor Campaign will be working in three different areas:
The Campaign will be applied three dimensions:

These are some of the behaviors that characterize a person with an attitude, that is, a good neighbor: We will be working on a weekly basis in ECA, we invite you to talk about them at home and to plant seeds of kindness in our children.
One aspect of our campaign is family reading activities with books that focus on kindness, empathy, and positive relationships. The Traveling Books left ECA on Fri, Aug 24 to start visiting elementary and lower MS families each weekend. We hope that each family with a book to read together will take advantage of this opportunity to read, talk about ways to grow in healthy relational skills, and then record a few short answers in the traveling journal.
