It is important for children to develop self-discipline and good work habits, resolve conflicts peacefully, and think independently at an early age. Each child will need some guidance in strengthening these skills and mistakes will be made. I will encourage and nurture your child's growth with the following rules and policies:
1. Listening bodies: I will listen and follow directions.
2. Raised hand: I will raise my hand to share ideas.
3. Quiet mouths: I will use a soft voice.
4. Walking feet: I will walk in school to be safe.
5. Helping hands: I will use my hands for helping and not hurting.
6. Caring hearts: I will use kind words.

If the students inappropriate behavior continues, the student will be written up and sent to the office. A parent conference may be requested.

A yellow or red stamp means check their folder for a behavior note to see the behavior that needs improvement and sign & return the note. At the end of each month, those students with three or fewer yellor and NO red stamps will receive a reward
