Code of Conduct

Each family participating in our co-op agrees to teach their children (and review as necessary) the following Code of Conduct: 

Please Note: This code of conduct applies to any official function of In Raising Arrows Homeschool Fellowship, including Co-op Days and Field Trips. Also please note that these are behaviors we each strive to teach our children, but we know full well that we ALL are sinners (our children as well as us parents). The reality is that we instruct our children in these ways, but we all make mistakes. We in no way expect “perfect kids” - we are journeying together to “instruct our children in righteousness.”

1. I will respect the adults who are in authority over me by respectfully listening when they speak, and by promptly obeying their instructions. If I am given an instruction that concerns me (I feel it is unbiblical or against my family’s rules), then I will respectfully ask to talk to my mom or dad about this issue.

Likewise, you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.? 1 Peter 5:5

2. I will demonstrate God's love in my relationships with others, assisting those who need help, showing kindness, using good manners, and working to be a blessing to those around me. I will extend friendship to all others in my group. I will make a continuous effort to be on good terms with everyone, excluding no one.

Let your gentleness be known to all men. Phil. 4:5a

Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind, let each esteem others better than himself. Phil. 2:2-3

3. Remembering that I am a child of God, I will honor Him with my words by using wholesome speech and by not making excessive or inappropriate noise. I will not tease, call names, tell secrets, or act in ways that hurt or embarrass others. I will search for ways to encourage and bless others with my speech.

Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips. Psalms 141:3

4. I will respect the supplies and property of others, including the church facility. I will ask before I borrow, take care of what I have, and return items to their proper place. I will clean up my messes, and I will help to keep the church facility clean. I will not intentionally cause disorder or destruction.

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. Luke 16:10

5. I will behave in an orderly way, raising my hand to ask a question, staying in my assigned room until I am dismissed, and walking quietly between classes..

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Gal. 5:22-23

6. I will demonstrate diligence by completing my classwork and my homework on time and to the best of my ability.

Work at everything you do with all your heart. Work as if you were working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3: 23
