Disciplinary Plan
Class Dojo
- Students can track their points
-- Addition of points for good behavior
-- Deduction of points for bad behavior

- Students can earn rewards once they reach a point achievement mark.
-- Ex. No hw pass, sit with a buddy pass, sweet treat, pencil

- Parents will be notified of all behavior points earned by each student.

Beat the Teacher

Here is how it works:

- When I need the class to quiet down, I start counting backwards from five: 5-4-3-2-1. The count could be quiet, loud, fast, or very slow. You must be listening...

- If I get to "1" and there is even one student talking, I get the tally point. If the entire class is quiet, they get the point.

HW should be completed on a nightly basis.

5 point will be deducted for every day a HW is missed/incomplete/late.


Students will be notified about a
a week in advance.

Reading quizzes will given on a weekly/biweekly basis

Grades will be placed on Option C and can be viewed at any time.
I'm done. Now what?
If you finish a test or class work earlier than the rest of the class please do one of the following:

- Read a book
- Finish uncompleted class work
- Write a journal entry
- Practice your vocabulary words
- Study for an upcoming test

*Make sure you always check your work first!

- Close

- Prepare

- Refocus

When you hear me say CPR you know we are in a transitioning period.

During our transitional periods (between subjects or in hallway) we are quiet.
If your child is absent:
Make sure you send in a signed note about the reason he/she was absent.
Missed work must be completed within 1-3 days depending on how long your child was absent.
Please continue to practice your daily prayers.

As a class we will pray:
In the morning
Before lunch
After lunch
We will dismiss as class at 2:40 pm.
