CHAMPS and Behavior

Let's the Battle for Pirate Treasure Begin!

Each month, your class has the chance to receive pirate's treasure.


Golden Book-Library

Golden Shoe- PE

Golden Record- Music

Golden Tray- Cafeteria

Golden Dustpan- Classroom Cleanliness

Golden Back Scratcher- Submitting Attendance on Time.


Two classes can earn each award a month. You will then get to display it outside of your classroom so everyone knows who won the treasure and a special prize or privilege!


Good Luck!
