     "The West Way Is The Best Way"
       
    We always...
     
    Listen when others are talking
    Wait our turn
    Respect personal space by keeping hands, feet, and objects to ourselves
    Use respectful language at all times and in all situations
    Walk quietly in single file through our building
     
    In the lunchroom we...
     
    Remain seated during lunch
    Talk in quiet voices
    Raise our hand to ask for help or permission
    Keep food on the table and clean up after ourselves
    Wait for the teacher to dismiss the class
    Line up quietly
     
    During carpool we...
     
    Remain seated
    Listen quietly for carpool numbers
    Walk to our car
     
    And remember...
     
    The school day begins when we enter the building!
