Pledging Compassion, Kindness & Respect in Class

Second-grade students in Peter Brochhausen’s class at Kent Primary School celebrated the conclusion of their recent Citizenship unit in social studies with a class flag and pledge project. 

After discussing symbols in our country’s flag, the students created a classroom flag, where each student created a small piece of the flag. 

Together, they then wrote a pledge to their classroom flag and each other: 

“I promise positive citizenship  
to the flag of the united students of Mr. Brock’s class, 
and to the children for which is stands,  
one smart class, under Mr. Brock,  
compassionate with kindness, respect and | 
friendship for all.”

One smart, compassionate and kind class, indeed!
