• The Target is Excellent Citizenship:

    Every day is a new day! Students start each day with two citizenship points; 10 points per week. After a verbal warning, one point will be deducted each time a student's behavior is redirected in class. When both points are gone, student wil be given a step (3 strikes rule). Citizenship points are entered into Powerschool under the Citizenship category.  Total Citizenship points per trimester, 100-120 depending on number of weeks counted in the trimester, are entered at the beginning of the trimester and any deductions will be subtracted each week. Keep an eye on Citizenship grade throughout the trimester!
