WE ALWAYS DO OUR BEST There is a quote that I love: "The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today." Remember, your best is different from everyone else's best. If you do the best that you can do, you cannot fail.
WE SPEAK ONLY WHEN IT'S OUR TURN The only time you should speak in class is when you have raised your hand and have been called on.
WE LISTEN WHEN OTHERS ARE SPEAKING When anyone else is speaking, you should be looking at that person and listening to what they are saying.
WE DO NOT LIE OR CHEAT I will not lie to you. Please don’t lie to me. And please do not cheat. You will not learn anything by cheating. WE ALWAYS TREAT OTHERS WITH RESPECT Before doing or saying anything, ask yourself this question: “Would I want someone to do or say this to me?” If the answer is no, then don’t do it!
WE ALWAYS CLEAN UP AFTER OURSELVES I recently fired the maid and your mommy is not here to clean up after you. If you make a mess, you clean it up!
