Class Rules and Consequences
During the first days (and weeks) of school, the following rules were consistently explained and reviewed. The rules will continue to be reviewed from time to time throughout the school year.
2. Listen Carefully!
3. Follow Directions!
4. Show Respect!
The consequences for disobeying a rule or otherwise disrupting the classroom is for a child to move his/her clip according to the school-wide behavior plan. As a part of this plan, appropriate behavior may be rewarded by having a child move his/her clip up the “color ladder”:

Severe misbehaviors that present a danger to the student or to others will result in an immediate referral to the office.
