NEW Classroom Behavior Plan

Recently, we have had a rise in classroom conflicts and disrespect to others. To help eliminate these issues, we had a meeting last week to determine some new classroom rules we will follow as well as determining a list of consequences and rewards for the class. Below is a picture of our new Classroom Agreement. I am very proud of the students for coming up with these ideas and creating this new plan! Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this new plan!

We had a 3-way tie last week for our Classroom Citizen of the Week! I love seeing that many students being rewarded for their great behavior and respectful attitude and actions! Congratulations Rosemarie Baca, Damonte Henderson, and Caroline Payton for setting such a great example in our classroom! Keep up the great work! :)
