Sunrise Citizen’s Oath


    I do solemnly promise that I will uphold the laws of Sunrise Elementary school.

    I will promote citizenship, peace, and justice by what I say and what I do.

    I’ll begin with respect.

    I will respect myself and others.

    I will choose cooperation over rivalry.

    I will choose kindness over gossip and name calling.

    I will choose to give compliments rather than insults of put downs.

    I will keep from fighting or bullying

    and expect others to do the same.

    I’ll set an example by doing the right thing.

    Should I forget or make a poor choice,

    I promise to correct my mistakes and begin again

    to be a good citizen of Sunrise.
