Notes about the last few weeks concerning discipline:

Most of our disputes both physical and mental have happened on the playground, in line, or an unstructured activity.

  • Recess is an earned event at this time of year. Unfortunately, if they go out and have to sit, they become even more agitated because of the heat etc. If at all possible I would prefer a place for these students to go and work. If all grade level classes go out at the same time, one teacher could hold the others that have not earned recess.
  • Create a meaningful learning environment. The more engaged and meaningful instruction the less disruptive students are.
  • If they are disruptive please call their parent and let them know. If they continue, write a referral. I would prefer if the referral came from the teacher and the classroom that the discipline occurred. (This includes special area.)
  • Students want to be successful but many of our students don’t know what summertime holds and this creates angst for them. A structured safe learning environment is the most beneficial way to deal with this angst.
