follows these basic rules to help us achieve our academic goals
and objectives. They are aligned with our school's expectations:
(F. I. R. E.)! They encourage the students
to treat other people the way they want to be treated.
When the rules are followed, everyone wins.
Leader in Me
is a "Leader in Me" school. The Leader in Me is a innovative,
school-wide program that enables teachers to unleash a child's
full potential by teaching leadership using the 7 Habits of
Highly Effective People.
We start teaching the habits on the first day of school. After
all the habits are taught, we use them everyday. Showing
leadership is an admired quality. We concentrate on reinforcing
these positive traits.
Discipline is a necessary part of the classroom. I try to be very
consistent when giving consequences. Our school
requires that every student have their ID and "Fire Card"
with them at all times. Any teacher can ask for their Fire Card and
sign it. The fourth signature equals a consequence. The
consequences build on each other. The card is only for minor
issues. Major discipline problems are sent to the office.
