Stay in your seat unless you have permission to get up.

Wait to leave until I dismiss you.

Avoid negative consequences; do what you’re supposed to do.

Be as enthusiastic as you can be about everything we do in class – even when you don’t feel like it. : )

Be responsible for your self – your things, your trash, etc.

Take pride in the classroom - even if it means picking up after someone else.

Be kind.
