The Comly School Pledge


Today I promise to be kind.

I will treat other people the way I want them to treat me.

I will not tease, touch others, or say mean things to them.

If someone bothers me, I will walk away, calm down and tell an adult.

Today, I promise to work hard, learn all I can and be the best that I can be!
