Our school has many traditions such as greeters. In every classroom we have someone to be a greeter to greet any visitors or teachers coming to our classroom. We also have the Porter Creed and we do that every morning after we do the Pledge of Alligence. Whenever the students do something good we get these 'star qualities' that has character traits and every Friday, at the end of the day, they randomly pick some people who did a star quality and then they can get a prize for being great at the end of the week. Whenever we have to be quiet , we usually have to have stars and stripes, and thats basically reading quietly. Whenever we HAVE to be quiet, we would give the teach five. Not a high five but you raise your hand and look at the teacher quietly.
