1) As a class, we will help each other to learn! (Working together we will learn much more than we can as individuals!)

2) Please stay in your seat unless you have permission to leave it! (This rule is to help protect your personal space and materials!)

3) Please be polite!

(If you have any doubts, it isn't polite! Being polite is the quickest and easiest way to improve your relationships with just about anyone)
