The Essential 55 Rule 24 By Ron Clark
Our Essential 55 Rule this week is about Food. Whenever food is offered, whether it be on a buffet or treats in class, never take more than your fair share. You never want to be greedy and try to get more than you should, not only because it is wasteful, but also because it is disrespectful to others when you do not leave enough for them.
