  • Discipline Policy      

         This year our goal is to create an environment in which every student is accountable for his/her behavior. Our discipline policy provides each student with guidance and the opportunity to make choices. Making the appropriate choice will create a positive learning environment and teach him/her valuable life lessons. This policy is intended to create a thriving learning community in which each child’s needs are met.

    The classroom rules:

    1. Follow directions the first time they are given.

    2. Raise your hand to speak.

    3. Show respect for others.

    4. Keep hands, feet, and other objects to yourself.

    5. Use appropriate language.

         We also have a reward/incentive program that allows for individual, cooperative group, and wholeclass rewards. We will offer students the opportunity to earn money and write checks for individual prizes at our class store, tally table chips for small group rewards, and the class will work toward a reward (such as game day, picnic lunch, etc) which will be voted on when they've earned bees.

    If a child chooses to break a rule, the following steps will be taken:

    First time: Warning

    Second time: Self Reflection Sheet

    Third time: Lunch Detention

    Fourth time: Call Parents Severe Disruption: Sent to Office

     

    We have reviewed and discussed this classroom discipline policy in class, but please review this once again with your child.
