Dear Candlebrook Elementary Students:
Each one of you is very special to us. We want you to be happy at school, learn all that you possibly can and develop a love for learning. We have identified four guidelines that will help you to be successful and to have a wonderful school year.
GUIDELINE ONE: BE RESPONSIBLE
All through your life you must decide how you will act. Therefore, we expect you to do what is right whether anyone is watching you or not. This is called “being responsible”. It isn’t always easy to make responsible choices, especially if someone else is not being responsible. It is important for you to remember that you are in charge of yourself. You are responsible for your own behavior, belongings and work. You can do what is right!
GUIDELINE TWO: ALWAYS TRY AND DO YOUR BEST
The best way to learn something new is to practice until you can do it. If someone is unwilling to try, they cannot practice. When you first try to do something, it is often difficult but if you keep trying, it gets easier and easier. When you do a job or an assignment, do your very best. While you are working on something, ask yourself, “Is this the best I can do?” If you give a job your best, you learn more and feel more responsible than if you just slide through the job. If you make mistakes, but did your best, your teacher will help you learn from your mistakes.
GUIDELINE THREE: COOPERATE WITH OTHER PEOPLE
Cooperation includes being polite, treating people with respect including classmates and all people of authority, accepting differences between people, dealing with disagreements and encouraging others to do their best.
GUIDELINE FOUR: RESPECT THE RIGHTS AND PROPERTIES OF OTHERS
Everyone must know that
The adults at Candlebrook Elementary will help you to achieve success in school. We will do this by helping you solve problems and by protecting your right to learn. We look forward to a good year and are happy to have an opportunity to work with you.
HAVE A WONDERFUL YEAR!
