*Be Respectful *Be Responsible *Be Safe

All Palmcroft students can ensure a safe, productive environment for all by being respectful, responsible and safe in the classroom, outside on the playground, and in the cafeteria.

We are working hard to follow safety rules and health standards to ensure all staff & students health and well-being while on campus.

The students will use a stoplight approach for behavior modifications in the classroom. A green day means the child had a wonderful day and followed the rules. A yellow day means that the child had to be reminded to follow the rules and received "warnings" or loss of dojos. A red day means the child did not follow the rules even after he/she was warned and may have lost several dojos and parents are contacted concerning the behavior problem.

While green days are always best, I tell students and parents that the yellow days are for the teacher to remind students of their actions. Yellow days are how we learn to behave. Red days are for parents to discuss with students their actions and remind them that school is a place to learn. Parents should make a point to tell the child how pleased they are if the child stays on green all day. I encourage parents NOT to scold their children for receiving a yellow day but discuss ways to improve behavior. Every child starts each day on green with a 100% dojo wheel. Once a child begins to lose dojos/receive warnings their color is moved to a yellow and there is no going back to green for that day. Please sign in to our ClassDojo behavior management system and check your child's behavior wheel for the day, week, and month!

We use ClassDoJo behavior management system.

I'm using ClassDojo to keep parents in the loop this year! ClassDojo gives students points for positive behaviors and takes points away when behavior is negative. I'll also share photos from class, important updates and wonderful moments – like when students work hard and help each other. All parents will need to give me a valid email address. All parents will receive a special parent code.

Uniforms

Palmcroft Elementary School enforces a uniform policy that has been created in connection with Yuma School District One's dress code policy.

The uniform top is a polo shirt in approved colors ONLY -- (white, royal blue, or yellow - any variation of yellow). SHIRTS MAY NOT BE ALTERED. (No cutting, tying, fringes anywhere.) Examples are shown below.

The Palmcroft Spirit shirt is also allowed. It MUST be a SCHOOL-APPROVED Spirit Shirt and not an individual-designed Spirit Shirt. I recommend saving these for Fridays when our class celebrates Palmcroft Spirit Day. DOJOs are given out weekly to those who wear these on Friday! Contact me or the office to purchase a spirit shirt!

The uniform bottom can be pants, shorts, skirts, jumper, or capris in approved colors ONLY - (black, khaki, and denim-jean). NO PRINTS ON UNIFORM BOTTOMS. NO NAVY BLUE BOTTOMS of ANY KIND.

Face Masks & Coverings

It is important that your child come to school with a face mask or covering that fits comfortably on your child's face. This is a requirement.Please discuss this necessity with your child as we are following safety rules and guidelines for our health.

Take your child's temperature each morning prior to coming to school. All students will have their temperatures taken when they arrive at school.

FYI:

If a student is in violation of the uniform policy and/or dress code, the teacher will speak to that student and contact the parents. If violations continue to occur, the principal will be contacted and appropriate action taken.
