Discipline-Each student starts each week with 4 quarters and 5 dollars in his/her rocket. Students can lose quarters/dollars according to the type of misbehavior. Minor misbehaviors (such as excessing talking, tattling, being off task, etc.) will result in losing quarters. More serious misbehaviors (such as being unkind to others, defiance, talking back, etc.) will result in losing dollars.
Extreme misbehavior (such as theft, fighting, continuous disruptions, etc.) will result in the student meeting with the principal/vice-principal to determine the consequence (such as loss of privilege, parent contact/meeting, removal from classroom for a period of time, etc.).
Loss of 1 quarter=Warning from the teacher
Loss of 2 quarters=Conference with the teacher
Loss of 3 or 4 quarters=Student loses 5 minutes of a privilege per quarter (such as recess time, Fun Friday time, etc.).
Each dollar lost will result in a student losing 10 minutes of a privilege (such as recess times, Fun Friday time, etc.).
*Fun Friday will consist of movies, games, outside time, etc.
*All work for the week must be completed before a student participates in Fun Friday activities. Students must complete work at school. Students will not be allowed to bring work home that was assigned at school and time was given to complete at school.
Monitoring Good Work
Rocket Clip Charts will be used for monitoring and rewarding good work in the classroom. Student clothespins will be moved up/down according to the quality of their work.
