Dear Parents,

Our Classroom Rules

I would like to inform you of our classroom rules. Please reinforce these rules at home with your children. These expectations are put in place so that each child has success in their academic career. The classroom and classroom discussion rules are the general standard for everyday. However, for each major activity and transition the acronym immediately below will be used to teach expectations to students on what is appropriate behavior. CHAMPs serves as a guide to our expectations for specific activities.

CHAMPS

Conversation-- Are student allowed to talk? with whom? for how long? at what voice level?

Help--How do students get their questions answered? how do they get my attention?

Activity--What is the expected product? What is the transition?

Success!
