Welcome to the fourth grade!  We are looking forward to a very productive and exciting year in 4th Grade.  This year each student will be doing a lot of reading, writing, social studies, science and mathematics. In order to create a positive learning environment, we have developed a classroom discipline plan with specific expectations for all students.  Everyone in the classroom will work together as a team to achieve our learning goals with few interruptions.  The plan below outlines the classroom rules, positive rewards, and consequences for appropriate and inappropriate behavior. 

Classroom expectations


            Treat others with kindness and respect at all times.

            Expect the best!

            Ask before acting and accept responsibilities for your actions.

            Minds on! Follow directions when given.

            Walk at all times.

            Offer to help.

            Remember to be prepared! (Bring all books, supplies, homework and a positive attitude)

            Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.

If a student chooses to ignore an expectation:

  • First Result:          Verbal warning.
  • Second Result:      Thinking time (student will sit apart from group)
  • Third Result:        Student loses privilege (such as: loss of citizenship pts, recess, etc.)
  • Severity Clause:  Infraction or office referral (3 infractions = office referral)


Students will be recognized for appropriate behavior with individual, group, and class rewards.  Individual students will be praised for their good behavior and will be rewarded with positive notes, stickers, or special privileges. Groups can also earn special rewards for cooperation and preparation.  The entire class can also earn rewards for achievements as a class. 

 Your support of this plan is essential. Please know that we will contact you as a result of both positive and negative behaviors. We look forward to working with your child and your family throughout the school year.  Please do not hesitate to contact us for any reason.  It is going to be a great year!
