Simple and effective

1. Be respectful to everyone at all times.
2. Keep hands, feet, and all other objects to yourself.
3. Raise your hand to speak.
4. Be prepared.
5. Arrive on time.

I know that #5 seems a little tough (since it is their parents responsibility to get them to school on time - I teach 4th grade), but that rule is for those that hang out in the cafeteria or in the halls in the morning socializing too long.

I have known a teacher that uses one rule and finds it extremely effective:

Discipline yourself so I don't have to.

She discusses what it means with her students on the first day and has never had any problems. I might try that this year.
