How to begin a new academic session in school? is one of the most commonly asked questions by school owners & principals. In this article, we almost cover every aspect of the school by starting a successful academic session.
During the starting days of school in the new session, students will not be bringing complete bags. It is, therefore the most suitable time to introduce classroom rules and regulations, mentors, and leadership programs.
- Begin with the importance of rules and regulations in general life. Discuss life without rules. Encourage students to share what they expect from, what they expect from their teachers and class fellows. Tell them for enjoying a healthy learning environment; they have to obey some rules. Ask them to enlist those rules on the board.
Give needful corrections and avoid using the word “don’t”. Language should be motivating.
SAMPLE MEMORANDUM (CLASSROOM RULES SAMPLE)

- I shall not spoil in the class.

After making rules of classrooms. Create a memorandum table chart with a computer or handwritten like the below sample.
