I, as a student of Jamesville DeWitt Middle School,
Pledge my every effort to acquire wisdom.
Knowledge will help me to develop understanding.
Experience with understanding will help me to develop wisdom.
I realize that I owe it to myself to strive toward this noble goal.
I respect my society of tradition and progress.
I am loyal to my family.
I will do my best to become a contributing member of my community.
I cherish my hard won democracy but I also know that my rights carry personal responsibilities.
I hope to understand other cultures so as to better understand my own.
As a citizen, I shall try to serve my country loyally.
I acknowledge mankind as a world brotherhood.
I accept the challenge that the conditions of tomorrow’s world will be one of my responsibilities.
Toward fulfilling this pledge, I am humbly grateful for all that I have.
