Classroom Management:
Students are encouraged to demonstrate respectful and responsible behavior at all times. Students can earn certain privileges for good behavior (individual behavior, group work, behavior in specials, staying on task, and demonstrating respect for staff and peers). 

Students will be sent home with a daily behavior sheet detailing their day. This is to be signed by a parent and returned each day.
