Conduct - from the past participle of the Latin conducere "to lead or bring together"

Seven Simple Rules

Good conduct is hard without rules. But rules are hard unless they are few in number and simple in content. In recognition of this, it's a Northfield tradition to begin each day by reciting seven simple rules which make it easier to bring everyone together and still maintain a healthy learning environment. Teachers, students, and parents in every cohort agree to:

    1. Respect and encourage one another, in word and deed.

    2. Practice personal and academic honesty.

    3. Be on time, be prepared, and be attentive.

    4. Be modest in word, deed, and appearance.

    5. Maintain a clean and orderly environment, including lockers, classrooms, and commons.

    6. Comply immediately with requests from administration.

    7. Resolve disputes.

Remember that teachers and parents are expected to set the example (1 Peter 5:3), and students are expected to follow (1 Peter 5:5). No one is expected to do this alone (1 Peter 5:10).
