The students and teachers in this classroom listen to each other, treat each other with respect, and teach and learn together. We are committed to doing and being the best we can be. We realize we are preparing ourselves today to realize the dreams we have for the future, yet, we are grounded in the present and we look for special moments to celebrate where we are right now. We are responsible for what we say and do. We are all gathered together at this time and in this place for a reason, and we take responsibility to learn about each other so we can help each other.
