Conduct and Attire Policy

Matthew 22:37-39 “Jesus replied, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “

Conduct

We desire for our children to learn in an environment that is wholesome and free from unnecessary distractions. Therefore, we cannot permit the disregard of rules to negatively affect the classroom environment or the activities we participate in, or cause us to lose privileges to meet in a given facility, or to reflect negatively on Christ on whom we represent. We expect children to practice self-discipline, obedience to authority, and Christ-like courtesy and respect of others.

1. Obedience is expected the first time; direct disobedience will not be tolerated.
2. Students will do their best to learn what is taught academically and character related.
3. Students will treat their classmates with care, concern, and consideration.
4. Students will take care of the property God has given us and will demonstrate good stewardship.
5. Students will be timely and orderly out of consideration of others and to help them better learn.

Attire
