What are classroom expectations?
We expect students to respect each other, their school, and their teachers by:
Being on task in class
Completing all assignments
Cooperative learning experiences with classmates
What are our Classroom Responsibilities?
In our cluster, we use a token economy in which preferred behaviors are reinforced through the use of positive behavior stamps. Students earn stamps by displaying preferred behaviors and will be allowed to have a pick from the school Treasure Box. Every week students will be assigned jobs/responsibilities in the classroom community.
