School Pledge

The Payne School Pledge is recited daily by all students, teachers and staff to reiterate behavioral expectations and promote a sense of community.

I am responsible for all my actions and behavior today.

I will listen, do my work and learn.

I will respect the feelings, property and rights of others.

I will be a good citizen by doing what is right, because it is the right thing to do for others and myself.
