Behavior

Every day your child comes to class, he/she is awarded 3 points as we review our class rules about respecting three things: ourselves, others, and our environment. Any other points awarded are for outstanding behaviors as they occur. Points are taken for misbehavior, (usually after a warning). When a student has 40 points, she/he selects a coupon or a treat for a reward. That student's points are then reset to 0 to start working towards the next reward.
