• Your child will spend his/her day in a positive environment where the expectations for behavior are clear and consistent.  Each first grader is expected to be a good listener, a careful worker, and a caring friend.  To help the students be on their very best behavior, I expect all children to follow these rules at all times in school:
     ____________________________________________________________________________________________
    1. Follow all directions the first time they are given.
    2. Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
    3. Respect school and personal property.
    4. Use only polite words and actions.
    5. Walk quietly and slowly in a line in the hallways.
    OUR COLOR CHANGE SYSTEM:
     
    No color changes
    white
    great behavior!
     1st
    time a rule is broken
    color change to green
    warning to remind child to make more careful choices
     2nd
     time a rule is broken
     
    color change to yellow
     
    miss 1 recess, behavior noted in home folder to parents
     3rd
    time a rule is broken
    color change to orange
    miss 2 recesses, behavior noted in home folder to parents
    Severe behavior problems will be immediately referred to a principal.
     
    If a child chooses to follow the rules,then these are some of the good things that will happen:
     
    1. He/she will come home with a clean block on his/her behavior chart for the day.
    2. I will send home good notes, type emails, and/or make positive calls throughout the year.
    3. He/she may get to choose a sticker and/or small toy.
    4. He/she may earn extra privileges.
    5. Our class will have marble jar rewards and exciting special events!
       
         Your child is precious and deserves the very best educational environment possible.  Thank you for supporting our class by stressing the importance of good behavior at school to your child.  Please hug him/her when you sign a clean, white square on the behavior chart each day.  If you ever do see a note about behavior, then please talk to your child about what happened and about ways to improve his/her behavior the following day.  If you ever have any questions about behavior or anything else in school, then I would be happy to talk with you!
