We can all look forward to a very exciting and rewarding year. As your son’s teachers, we are vitally interested in his welfare. In order to provide the excellent climate he deserves, we have developed the following set of rules to help him demonstrate self control.
Junior Kindergarten Rules
- I will be a first time listener.
- I will put things away.
- I will keep my hands and feet to myself.
- I will share.
- I will take turns.
- I will raise my hand to speak.
The following procedure is used during the school day if a student chooses to break a rule:
1st time: Student receives a verbal warning and removes his green crayon from his pocket on the discipline chart. He receives a sticker on his chart in his folder.
2nd time: Student removes yellow crayon from his pocket on the discipline chart and has time out. He loses his sticker in his folder.
3rd time: Student removes a blue crayon from his pocket on the discipline chart and has time out. A note is sent home that is to be signed and returned the next day. He loses his sticker on his chart in his folder.
4th time: Student removes a red crayon from his pocket on the discipline chart and has time out. He will visit the principal and his parents will be contacted.
SEVERE DISRUPTION: The student will be immediately taken to the office.
(Example: disrespect towards a teacher, intentionally hurting another child)
“Crayons” are colored strips of paper that serve as a reminder that a rule has been broken and are not intended as a punishment. They will be returned to the discipline chart at the end of each day. Your child will start each morning with a green crayon visible in his pocket chart. Please do not make a big deal at home about losing a crayon. We have found that the less you talk about them at home OR IN CARPOOL, the more effective they are at school.
It is in your son’s best interest that we work as a team with regard to his school experience, therefore we will keep you informed about his progress at school. We will let you know if there is a discipline problem; otherwise, assume that your son is doing fine and there is no need for concern.
