• My expectations for my students:

    • Approach each day with a positive attitude.

    • Come to school ready to learn with a growth mindset.

    • Be willing to take risks.  It's ok to make mistakes.  You learn from them.

    • Treat yourself and everyone kindly. Keep your hands and negative comments to yourself.

    • Always try your best.  You will be proud and amazed at what you can do when you put forth your best effort.

    • Participate in learning.  When you "do" is when you really learn.

    • Don't compare yourself to others.  Everyone is unique and special.  We all have strengths and challenges.  Respect that.

    • Read or listen to books every day.  To get better at anything, you need to practice.

    • Complete your classwork.

    • Ask for help if you need it.  Talk to me if you have a concern. 

    • Try your best so you can be proud of your efforts and accomplishments. 

    • Speak up for yourself.  You can tell others to kindly stop doing a behavior that annoys you or interferes with your learning. 

    • Share what we are doing at school with your parents.  Even though you might feel like saying, "Nothing" when they ask what we did, you and I both know you worked hard while you were at school.  Be proud of what you have accomplished.
