Next Week...

We will be starting a new "positive" behavior chart/routine working with the Raptor Way. Each child will still have a pocket of their own on our chart. Instead, of having green, yellow, and red strips...the children will earn Raptor Tickets when we catch them using the Raptor Way. Ask your child how many Raptor Tickets they have earned each day (good behavior throughout the day equals many tickets.) At the end of the week, you will receive a slip with your child's weekly amount of tickets. The children will have the option to put their tickets into the school drawing or buy small prizes/treats from me. I will continue to make phone calls/emails for behaviors if needed. This is a transition to help them understand the process when they are in Kindergarten next year.
