School/Class Pledges

I am somebody.
The me I see is the me I'll be.
I can be respectful, responsible and resourceful.
I can succeed.


I am in school to learn.
I will follow the directions of my teachers.
I will not say unkind things to others.
I will report problems to the teachers.
I will try my very best.
I am in school to learn.


We raise our hands to speak.
We work quietly at our seats.
We use voices soft and sweet.
We keeps our places tidy and neat.
We are helpful, friendly, and fair.
We take turns and willingly share.


I make mistakes so I can learn.
I learn so I can succeed.
I succeed so I can help others.


I pledge to show my respect
by listening to others,
using my hands for helping,
caring about others feelings,
and being responsible for what I say and do.


My Promise

Each day I'll do my best,
And I won't do any less.

My work will always please me,
And I won't accept a mess.

I'll colour very carefully,
My writing will be neat.

And I simply won't be happy
'Til my papers are complete.

I'll always do my homework,
And I'll try on evey test.

And I won't forget my promise --
To do my very best!


A Circle of Friends

We've joined together as classmates
as the new year begins...
A year full of learning
while we become friends.
We'll share and be kind
as we work and play.
And our friendship will grow
with each passing day.


I am wonderful.
I am good at learning.
And I like to learn.


Learner's Creed

I believe in myself and my ability to do my best at all times.
Because I am responsible for my life and for all of my actions:

I will listen,
I will see,
I will speak,
I will feel,
I will think,
I will reason,
I will read,
I will write.

I will do all these things with one purpose in mind:
To do my best and not to waste this day for this day will come no more.
