Rules & Expectations:  As a class, the students will decide on the rules and expectations for the classroom.  I have three rules that I expect from my students:  Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Make Good Choices.  In my classroom, we practice the three strikes: warning, time loss of recess, and write a note home.  I feel it is important for students to take reponsibility for their actions by writing a note home to their parents explaining their behavior.  As always, your support is appreciated.
