Flagstone ROCKS: Our Philosophy
At Flagstone, we believe all students have a right to quality education and that each student has a right to attend school, to learn and play in a safe environment. As we work to nurture positive behavior at Flagstone, our hope is to collaboratively model and guide students to think critically, to communicate effectively, and to creatively and constructively come up with ways to resolve conflict and build relationships that ensure students have a safe and friendly environment to learn and grow.
We believe that character development is as important as academic development and use redirection, reteaching, and reflecting for behavior, in the same way, we do our academic instruction.
Flagstone Elementary School-Wide Teaching Framework
We teach students what ROCKS look like in each area of the building and on the playground. During the first two weeks of school, we review these in-depth with a review of these after winter break. We use the following teaching activities to support the implementation of ROCKS.
Class meetings to review rules
Second Step curriculum to teach social-emotional support and conflict resolution
Restorative practices to help students restore relationships if they have harmed or harmed someone else.
Some possible incentives for stellar ROCKS behavior could include:
Class team incentives
Private conversations linked to ROCKS traits
Students calls home to share with family linked to ROCKS traits
Positive referrals linked to ROCKS traits
Mustangs linked to ROCKS traits
Golden mustangs linked to ROCKS traits
Leadership roles in the classroom
Leadership role at the school level
Consequences may occur if ROCKS traits are consistently not exhibited.
