The two key ideas that we stress in our classroom are respect and responsibility. In order to work together successfully, the students have to respect not only me, but also themselves and their fellow classmates. In addition, they need to accept responsibility for their academic effort and their day to day behavior. Respect and responsibility are words that our class will hear and experience often throughout the year.
You'll find both of these themes in the Ohio School Pledge that we recite each morning...
At the Ohio Street School, we pledge to:
- Be a good friend to everyone.
- Respect ourselves and all students and staff.
- Be responsible citizens.
- Take care of our school community.
