This is also a great place for you to leave me a note if something has changed in your child's schedule for the day - whether it's a lunch change or pick up change or whatever. I check binders every morning.
Email vs. Phone call
Thanks for your understanding with this!
Purple: Star Student

Orange: Teacher's Choice (apology, take a break, etc.)
Red: Call home
I'd like to be very clear that "bad" colors (yellow, orange, red) are not meant to be used as a punishment at home, but rather as an opportunity to talk about the problems and figure out solutions or work towards better days. Similarly, "good" colors can warrant similar conversations and celebrations over what went right. In class, we use it as a way to show that positive and negative interactions all have good and bad consequences. We talk about it A LOT. We can start a day out badly, but fix it through our choices (or vice versa.) We can make mistakes and recover from them. I certainly don't have all purple days in my life, so it's unrealistic for us to hold kids to that standard. Ending their day in green is great. Occasional yellows happen, too. What's important is the conversation that goes along with the color.

It's always a good idea to wear tennis shoes every day, though, so that your child can run at recess and mileage club. (Mileage club is an optional PE enrichment program where kids run laps at recess or during PE and try to accumulate a marathon over the course of a year.)
