Student and Classroom Expectations
In order to provide my students with the safe and excellent educational climate they deserve, the following rules and procedures will be in effect at all times.
In our class...
we are kind
we laugh often
we show respect
we listen to others
we say please & thank you
we learn from each other
we make mistakes
we say I'm sorry
we do our best
we have fun
we love to learn
I will treat you with respect so you will know how to treat me. If you cause a problem, I will ask you to solve it. If you can't solve the problem or choose not to, I will make the choice for you.
Consequences will depend on the special person, and the special situation. If you feel something is unfair, whisper to me, "I'm not sure that's fair," and we will talk it out.
I love catching students doing what is right! There are multiple ways to receive positive recognition. I verbally praise my students, give out rewards, award points through Class Dojo, and award other incentives.
Our class is a team and we must all work together to be successful.
If a student chooses not to follow classroom rules and expectations, the following steps will be taken:
1. Verbal Warning- This is the chance for students to make a good decision.
2. After the initial verbal warning, if students continue to misbehave the teacher will make a decision for them to encourage better behavior.
3. Parent Think Sheet- Students are expected to take ownership of their actions and will complete a "Parent Think Sheet" to explain their behavior and how they will behave in the future. Students are responsible for sharing the Parent Think Sheet with a parent and return it to me the next day with a parent signature. I will also contact parent by phone, e-mail, or a letter home when necessary.
4. If negative behavior continues the dean will be contacted.
