The classroom expectations are the same as the school-wide
behavioral program, PBS (Positive Behavioral Support). I also refer to them as the "expectations in life" because if your child can demonstrate  these observable traits, he/she will probably be a successful member of society. That being said, I would also like you to know that both the class and I discuss examples of appropriate behaviors and more importantly, they develop the  consequences for appropriate and inappropriate behaviors. 

I will respect other people's belongings.
I will use kind, polite language.
I will keep my hands and my feet to myself.
I will stay in my assigned area.
I will follow adult directions.
I will keep track of my own belongings.
