School Expectations

  • Treat others with kindness, and respect
  • Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself
  • Use courteous language and be responsible
  • Walk in the halls and be safe
  • Follow directions when asked
  • With adult guidance, children take responsibility for their learning and assume responsibility for their actions. Our goal is that every child self-monitors their own behaviors. It is our intent that it is a learning opportunity when students are unable to meet expectations.
  • Parents are an integral component in supporting our children in meeting expectations.
  • We encourage children to solve their problems first on their own. If expectations are not met the classroom teacher, educational assistant or lunchroom supervisor will initially deal with the situation. If they deem it necessary they will involve an administrator. Emphasis will be on the insights a staff member gains from speaking with the student and solving the problem together.
  • Consequences for poor choices may include the loss of privileges within the classroom or school, a “cooling off” time outside the classroom, solutions on how to “make it right” or a phone call home.
  • At times, when an incident is more serious or there have been repeat incidents, an administrator may be involved. They will determine the consequence depending on the seriousness of the student behavior.
  • In any circumstance where behavior is an issue, the focus is on the student understanding their responsibility in the situation and accepting consequences for their actions.
