Hello all!
Next year i will be directing a homeschooling campus that meets once a week. I want to come up with an acronym to remind the kids to be respectful to everyone and everything. Can you help me find a good acronym for respect? (Or any other word as well.....humility (humble) is also a key word for the year)

I found this, but am not sure if it'll work; I guess it depends on the age group(s).  This was written for adults.

R  RECOGNIZE the inherent worth of all human beings.

E  ELIMINATE derogatory words and phrases from your vocabulary.

S  SPEAK with people – not at them…or about them.

P  PRACTICE empathy.  Walk awhile in others’ shoes.

E  EARN respect from others through respect-worthy behaviors.

C  CONSIDER others’ feelings before speaking and acting.

T  TREAT everyone with dignity and courtesy.

I saw these, too.  My comments are in green, but I copied the rest.

Regard Every Species, Person, Etc. with Consideration and Thoughtfulness. Could replace a few.  For example, Regard Every Student and Parent with Esteem, Consideration, and Thoughtfulness.

or if they all have to be related to respect but not a sentence how about:
Regard
Esteem
Spare 
Praise 
Endorse
Consideration
Thoughtfulness
