• Dear Parent,

    In order to guarantee your child, and all the students in our classroom,  have the learning climate they deserve, we utilize a “STAR Student” discipline plan. 

    Our Rules

    1. Listen to others 

    2. Walk inside the school

    3. Use a quiet voice

    4. Follow directions quickly 

    5. Be kind to others

    Remember- We are all friends!  


    Our students are STARS! (Students, Transforming, & Achieving, Results for Success)   They each have a STAR with their name on it. 

    Our STAR students make super choices

     Outstanding- The student has gone beyond the call! (You have done an outstanding job today!) The student might have helped a friend or did a task without being told.  A sticker will be placed on the behavior chart indicating it was an Outstanding Day! 


    Great Job- The student has been a STAR today! They were caught sharing, learning, listening, and being great helpers. This is the way STAR Students behave so everyone can learn in a great environment. 

    Unfortunately,  sometimes even STAR Students make poor choices. 


    Stop and Think /1st consequence- The student receives a verbal warning. The “STAR” will be moved but just as a visual reminder to get back on track. This is just a warning… (Students should think…”Time for me to think about getting back on track.”) I would encourage parents to focus on colors and NOT if the star stick moved. Green is a good day whether the child stayed in the sky or moved to green. 


    2nd poor choice consequence - The student continues to make poor decisions. There will be a yellow mark on their behavior chart. The student will lose free choice of center. They will move their “STAR”  to yellow.  (Students should think…

    I decided not to change my behavior so I chose to face the consequences.”)

    This provides a visual reminder to the student to correct the behavior. 


    3rd poor choice consequence -Parent will be  Contacted - Student moves “STAR” to the Parent Contact.  A red X is placed in the behavior chart. A small note will be written on the behavior chart. The student will be asked to think about his/her choices.  ALL privileges will be taken away.   If needed, the student will be sent to another room or separate place in our room for a cool down. Following a student's “cool down” he/she will discuss with the teacher the reasons such discipline was necessary.   (Students should think…”I decided not to change my behavior,  so my parents need to know how I acted today.”


    In cases of physical contact where a student does not keep his or her hands or feet to themselves then the student is automatically placed on red. Also, if another teacher or adult calls on a student in the hall or classroom then a student is placed on red. 


    4th consequence - Phone Call home and phone conference and possible in person conference depending on behavior - The student is very disruptive to the learning environment. ( I disrupted not only my learning, but I interfered with other student’s learning and lost my self-control multiple times.

    Please check your child’s behavior sheet Daily and initial.  Please praise your child for a Good Day/ green!  If it is marked yellow then you may need to discuss ways to make better choices. If your child is on red, then please reinforce the rules and go over ways to have a better day. Please have patience and understanding the first few weeks as we practice rules and expectations. I will contact you if I feel that we need to discuss your child’s behavior. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email, send a note, or call.
