BAR Strip

This year, as a 6th grade, we have established a common classroom management system using a BAR strip. BAR strips are a way to hold students accountable for their Behavior, Attitude, and Responsibility. These strips contain the minutes of our weekly Friday Fun in increments of five. Tuesday, all classes established guidelines for appropriate behavior, positive attitudes, and being responsible. If students are not following these guidelines they will be asked to remove 5 minutes from their strip. If a student loses their BAR strip, they will miss all of Friday Fun as this does not demonstrate responsible behavior. We hope that this will serve as a tangible representation of their Friday Fun and be a motivator for them.
