In order for our classroom to become a place where our goals can be achieved, we have set in place behavior expectations with both positive and negative consequences for your actions.
Students are expected to:
- Respect to all teachers, staff, classmates, and school property.
- Exhibit exemplary etiquette by:
- Raise your hand before speaking
- Walk quietly from place to place
- Sit properly in your chairs
- Come to school prepared to learn (having homework, supplies, and a positive attitude)
- Encourage others with kind words and actions.
- Allow others to work undisturbed.
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
Following these expectations will result in: a variety of positive affirmations including:
- Verbal praise
- Lion Paws
- Homework passes
- Class dress-up days
- Award certificates
- Email, phone call or note home to parent
- Free time in class
…and many more!!
Failing to follow these expectations will result in: loss of lions paws and/or signing the Behavior Binder. The Behavior Binder consequences are the following:
1 check: loss of 5 lion paws
2 checks: recess time out of 5 minutes and loss of 10 lions paws
3 checks: note home
4 checks: child sent to principal
Other consequences include: loss of a privilege, seating change, a letter of apology, or a student/teacher conference.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
