Conduct Expectations - “The CCSA Way”

At The Chester Charter School for the Arts, I will do the following to help myself and others succeed:


Be Safe

This means that I walk calmly, stay in my own personal space, follow directions, and remain in assigned areas. 


Be Peaceful

This means that I listen to others and solve problems with words.


Be Respectful

This means that I use appropriate words, body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice.


Be Caring

This means that I use kind words, help others, and think of their feelings.


Be Responsible

This means that I make good choices that help me learn and do my best work. I am on-time and prepared for success each day. This also means that I “leave no trace” and “make it better.”


Be Honest

This means that I tell the truth even when it is hard to do.
