Non-Negotiable School Rules

This list of five common expectations exists in all classrooms, hallways, activities - everywhere. They create a common language and common consistency for everyone to live by. These five items allow students to know what their expectations are no matter which classroom they are about to enter. Read, recite, memorize, and live them in all you do and say, that is the Brentwood way!
