Expectations and Class Promise

  • We are a Great Expectations Classroom.  We practice Eight Expectations each and every day.

     We will value one another as unique and special individuals.
    We will not laugh at or make fun of a person's mistakes nor use sarcasm or putdowns.
    We will use good manners, saying "please," "thank you," and "excuse me" and allow others to go first.
     We will cheer each other to success.
     We will help one another whenever possible.
     We will recognize every effort and applaud it.
     We will encourage each other to do our best.
     We will practice virtuous living, using the Life Principles.
    (i.e. friendship, responsibility, courtesy, respect, self-confidence)
    When we care about each other and our classroom, we share, take turns and help each other learn.  We listen carefully, always try our best, work hard, give each other praise, and have fun together.  We know that everyone makes mistakes and we won't laugh or make fun of them.  We think about what is right and stop when someone asks us to.  This is who we are even when no one is watching.
