Discipline Procedures

Our system of discipline is simple.  We work hard to make the classroom a positive and safe place for all. 


1. Always be respectful of others

2. Come to school prepared to learn

3. Raise your hands and wait for permission to speak

4. Fallow all directions

5. Complete all assignments


1. Verbal Praise

2.   “Positive note or phone call home

3.   Homework pass

4.   Special privileges



Marbleswill be put in a jar for working as a team with your classmates. For example, if the class receives a compliment from another teacher for walking nicely in the hallway, I will put some marbles in the jar.  When we fill the jar the class will earn game time, a movie, or extra recess.


Please check and sign the planner each night!

      Morning Arrival

      1. Enter the classroom in an orderly fashion (no running, pushing, or shouting).

      2.   If you are late, please go to the office to get a tardy slip.

      3.   All belongings are to be placed in your locker or desk until the end of the day.

      4.   Go directly to your desk and quietly unload your belongings.

      5.   Place all homework in the left hand corner of your desk.

      6.  Begin morning work quietly, which will be written on the board. 

      Class Time

      LISTENING:  When I am giving directions, teaching a lesson, or answering student questions, your attention must be on me - hands empty, facing forward, and quiet.

      Lunch:  In the cafeteria you will sit at the table in your assigned space. You must follow all cafeteria rules. 

      Morning Break: 

      • Students will use the restroom and get a drink of water.

      Lining up:

      • When your table group is called, please push your chair under your desk quietly, and walk to the front of the room to get in line.
      • Walk quietly in the hallway without touching anyone or anything on the walls.

      Leaving the room:

      · You will only be allowed to leave to use the restroom during your "independent work" time, not during my "teaching" time or small group work (unless it is an emergency). DO NOT INTERRUPT a lesson to ask to use the restroom.

      · When you need to leave to use the restroom you need to sign out.  Always take the restroom pass.

      · When you return to the room, return the pass and note the time you returned on the clipboard.


      End of Day

      • Before you leave for the day, make sure your desk and floor area are clean and free of trash.
      • Wait until you are called to line up for dismissal.  Please remain in line quietly and wait for me to dismiss you.



      • If you are absent, your missed work will be in desk when you return. If you do not understand an assignment, it is YOUR responsibility to ask.
      • You are responsible for doing current assignments as well as making up the assignments you missed.
