Procedures are a part of life. We follow procedures when we go to the movies, eat at a restaurant, or fly on an airplane. The reason we have procedures is so people can function in society knowing the proper and appropriate way to do things. Procedures can make things run more efficiently, help people to be more successful, and also make things safer. Think of what would happen if people didn’t follow the procedure at a stop sign or red light! This classroom also has its own set of procedures. These procedures help to establish our classroom culture. When everyone follows the procedures, our class becomes safer, calmer, and a better environment in which to learn. Although you may not remember them at first, please do your best to follow the procedures below. Let’s all choose to have a great year!
