Baby wipesWish ListStudents are permitted to use the bathroom throughout the day. At the beginning of the year I send students by tables or pairs. If it is an emergency the students are always able to leave the room to go to the bathroom. I encourage all children to try to use the bathroom at the appropriate time as well as going before school to avoid missing important directions or instructions.
We use the No Bullying Policy in the school handbook for major issues. We do follow all the steps even the detention and suspension in first grade. Please review this policy with your child to ensure they understand the consequences.Discipline
We all use positive disciple in our classrooms. Each teacher has their own method of positive disciple. When students are being good listeners, following directions and doing their personal best each day they will be rewarded. This form of positive discipline works the majority of the time. If we continue to have a behavioral issue with your child you will be notified.
All children are going to make mistakes and that is how they learn. If a note does come home please dont panic and realize that we all learn from our mistakes.
We really believe by having the students work hard to make good choices in our classroom.
