If you have any doubts, Percy also shows exactly what not to do.
• No spitballs!
• No running in the halls!
• No bouncing off the ceiling!

“The story’s rhyme makes it fast-paced, and the colorful illustrations are fun to look at. Younger students will enjoy the humor, and teachers can use the story as a review of classroom rules.” —Library Media Connection
“Percy, the self-assured host from Thanksgiving Rules, returns with some guidelines for starting school on the right foot…. Murfin creates a playfully skewed school environment with her wobbly collages and rosy-cheeked students.” —Publishers Weekly
