Classroom Expectations, Consequences,
In order for students to have a successful year of learning, it is important that they are responsible, respectful, and cooperative. If a student chooses not to be responsible or interferes with the learning of others, there will be consequences for their actions.
Some of these consequences could be loss of recess, a student-written letter home, or parent contact. Our focus will be to help the student identify the difficulty he or she had in class that day and what better choices he or she can make in the future.
Your child will sit with a team of five or six students. Each team will change monthly. This team experience is designed to encourage students to work together toward a common goal. The team will encourage all members to have papers signed on time, be prepared to begin lessons after transitions, cooperate with one another, and keep desks and folders organized. Teams will earn points; the team with the most points at the end of the month will earn a special prize.
The All-Star Club is a club that all students in G13 have an opportunity to join! To be eligible to join the club, students must have at least three weeks of outstanding behavior and no missing or late work. Each week students have the chance to earn an “All-Star Coupon.” When a student has earned three coupons, he/she may join the All-Star Club. If at any time a student does not meet the behavior or academic expectations of the club, he/she will be dismissed from the club. At that time, the student can begin to earn three coupons to rejoin the club. The All-Star Club is an excellent way to reward students for meeting classroom expectations.
