Behavior Policy

Behavior Policy              

Dear Parents,

          I'm delighted to be your child's teacher this school year!  Although returning back to school looks a little different at the moment, I still believe in keeping structure and consistency.  Please take a close look at the discipline plan below.  With your help and support I look forward to many exciting and rewarding experiences as the year progresses.

Explanation of Discipline Plan

          It is our belief that the parents and/or guardians are the first teachers and the home is the first classroom.  Professional educators build on what a child brings to school.  For that reason, each success and every concern should be shared by the teacher and parent whenever possible.

          Below, I have outlined our classroom expectations that will be in effect for the duration of the year.  In order to maintain a positive learning environment, I have developed the same expectations and consequences.  This will provide the  structure and consistency I mentioned above.

          Your child will begin with 100 points for citizenship at the beginning of every six weeks. Whenever an expectation is broken after a verbal warning is given, a point will be subtracted.
