• Rules of Behavior

    The Simple Version: We treat each other with kindness and respect. We support each other in the quest for learning and we conduct ourselves with honesty and integrity. Room 11 uses Class Dojo (an online program) and also has a card system for behavior. Students change their cards as needed. Green is fantastic! Yellow is "Uh, oh....better think!" and a talk with me, Orange is "Yikes! and the loss of a privilege, and Red is a parent contact and an appropriate consequence. Greens all week and weekly class work turned in are rewarded with Special Activities on Friday: students get to choose to go to the Movie Room, the Game Room, the Art Room, or have Free Play on the Playground.
     
     
    Teachers will give verbal warnings when rules are broken.  After these warnings, steps will be incurred.  There is a weekly turn around for steps. 

    Step 1
    Student conference with the teacher. 
    Step 2
    Phone call home by the teacher.  Loss of privilege.
    Step 3
    Second phone call home and a lunch detention.  The detention slip must be signed by school personnel.
    Step 4
    Written referral with Administrative intervention.

    Any infraction past Step 4 is an office referral and parents will be contacted for a conference.
