The Rules

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child's mind,
And they fashioned it with care,
One was a teacher, the tools she used
Were books and music and art,
One a parent with guiding hand,
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day the teacher toiled,
With touch that was deft and sure,
While the parent labored by her side
And polished and smoothed it o'er.
And then at last the task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed he would have failed
If he had worked alone,
For behind the parent stood the school,
And behind the teacher, the home.


In order to provide learning experiences for each student in my classroom, some guidelines are necessary. I will be sending home a list of rules for our classroom, which will be signed by each second grader. These rules will be covered thoroughly the first month of school, and implemented throughout the entire school year.


1. Treat everyone with courtesy and respect.
2. Be good listeners and follow directions the first time.
3. Focus on the task and do your best!
4. Use school equipment and materials properly and safely.
5. Walk; don't run, in classroom and through campus.
6. Keep your hands and feet to yourself.

Parents who visit Eagleridge need to stop in at our office, and obtain a
VISITOR'S BADGE. This ensures that teacher, aides and other school personnel
will recognize that you are authorized to be on campus. Thanks you for
following this rule which helps to keep our campus safe for
your children!
