Students are building a community of learners in Room 123! An important step in that process is writing our Class Promise. Students worked together to think of all the ways we can show the Richards Ways in our classroom and then illustrated our promise. We also discussed what we can do if we break our promise by accident. Finally, we all signed this document to demonstrate our commitment to learning and to each other.
Following the Richards Way earned students a special recess, complete with dancing, bubbles, and sidewalk chalk!
