FYI Expectations and Procedures

Attendance, Tardies, and Early Release 

 

Don't be late, get to school by eight! 

The bell rings at 7:55 am.  The tardy bell is at 8:00am.  Students who are tardy or leave school early for appointments interfere with their academic learning.  We are also working on perfect attendance for special rewards as a class

  

Birthdays

If your child plans to invite a limited number of friends to a birthday party outside of the school day, please send me the invitations in an envelope for distributing.

Celebrating a birthday is a special occasion, and if you would like to send in treats, we will celebrate during the last 15-20 mins. of the school day.  Please send me an email bbencomo@jocombs.k12.az.us for the current number of students in our class.  

  

Character Counts and Character Always

Our district utilizes the Character Counts  philosophy.  In order to instill good character within our students, our expectations include the following values from the CHARACTER COUNTS website:

Trustworthiness

Be honest • Don’t deceive, cheat or steal • Be reliable — do what you say you’ll do • Have the courage to do the right thing • Build a good reputation • Be loyal — stand by your family, friends and country

Respect

Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule • Be tolerant of differences • Use good manners, not bad language • Be considerate of the feelings of others • Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone • Deal peacefully with anger, insults and disagreements

Responsibility

Do what you are supposed to do • Persevere: keep on trying! • Always do your best • Use self-control • Be self-disciplined • Think before you act — consider the consequences • Be accountable for your choices

Fairness

Play by the rules • Take turns and share • Be open-minded; listen to others • Don’t take advantage of others • Don’t blame others carelessly

Caring

Be kind • Be compassionate and show you care • Express gratitude • Forgive others • Help people in need

Citizenship

Do your share to make your school and community better • Cooperate • Get involved in community affairs • Stay informed; vote • Be a good neighbor • Obey laws and rules • Respect authority • Protect the environment

 

Character Always is a bridge between the philosophy of Character Counts and our positive classroom discipline.
