Positive Learning Environment

In order to create a positive learning environment, the First Grade Community decided on some classroom expectations for all learners. All learners will work together as a team to achieve our learning goals with few interruptions.


  • Being Responsible: I do the right thing and can be trusted to do what needs to be done. Are you being trustworthy or careless?
  • Being Respectful: I treat others how I want to be treated. Are you being polite or rude?
  • Being Helpful: My words and actions help not hurt others. Are your being helpful or hurtful?
  • Being Careful: I treat friends and friends things in a gentle way. Are you being gentle or rough?
  • Being Patient: I can wait calmly for someone or something. Are you being calm or restless?
