At the start of the school year we will work together to create a list of classroom expectations. This small list of rules will ensure that every student can come to school to learn, be safe and have fun. We learn and practice the rules as a class. If a student struggles with attending to a task, he or she will be asked to Take a Break. This brief break is not intended as a punishment but instead an opportunity to collect themselves so they can participate again in class. Students are also given logical consequences for behavior that is less than ideal. They will have the chance to fix their mistakes and learn from them so they do not happen again.
