We are encouraging our students to practice using
"The Essential 55" rules.
The rules involve teaching and modeling consideration and respect within the educational setting in order to improve classroom learning. The rules give students the tools they need to succeed not only in school but in life. The author, Ron Clark, has also written "The Essential 55 Workbook" which contains the 55 rules. If you are interested in learning more about "The Essential 55", I have included a link to the workbook (it is available for free download). This workbook was designed, by request, for parents and contains activities to help children get fired up with enthusiasm for the classroom. It also includes role playing exercises and quizzes to help you discover their specfic strengths.
