Every school year, two delegates from each class come to the Rules Convention. Together, representatives from the entire school decide upon new school rules. The school-wide rules this year are: Try your best and let God do the rest; Treat others the way you want to be treated; and care for the world around us.
Trying your best is one of the many things you can do to help you succeed. It is a great motto to live your everyday life by. Letting God doing the rest is important too. You can do this in many different ways. First, try your best and do not mind anyone else; focus on yourself. Also, be faithful in God and in yourself.
Treat others the way you to be treated. Everyone should be kind to each other because we all want to be treated with kindness. Sometimes people forget that everyone has feelings. If you ever forget this rule and make a mistake, just remember to apologize. Having empathy is an important element to this school rule.
Care for the world around us. Caring for the world can help a lot people. Firstly, pollution is a big problem in the world right now. Everyone has to do their part on helping the amazing Earth. This means do not litter. Littering can be dangerous to the other animals around us. Also, this rule is meant to make us think twice before throwing away an old worksheet, instead of recycling it. Not only do we need to care for the larger world around us, but it’s important to think about our smaller world that we live in day-to-day, like our homes and classroom.
The school wide rules help us live our everyday lives with purpose. At the very least, we should think twice and make more of an effort on these three particular topics. Every living thing is important in our world, and the school rules are there to remind us try our best to treat everyone and everything in our world with love and respect.
