  • We introduced our classroom behavior management system. Ask your child to explain this to you. We operate the day on a clip system that supports positive behaviors and redirects negative behaviors. When your child is caught making great choices in the classroom they move their clip up. When they are caught making poor classroom choices, they move their clip down. Below is a picture of our classroom tool.



Purple: Treasure chest at the end of the day!

Blue: Fancy sticker at the end of the day!

Green: Great Day! High fives and thumbs up at dismissal!

Yellow: 5 minutes of recess or free choice taken away.

Orange: 10 minutes of recess or free choice taken away.

Red: All of recess taken away or all of free choice taken away.
