Expectations from Students:

We aim to create a positive learning and respectable atmosphere. Students are expected to:

  • attend regularly & punctually
  • work to the best of their ability
  • respect the rights & property of others
  • obey school rules
  • accept responsibility for their own actions
  • be polite & courteous to staff & other students
  • Use acceptable language
  • be  properly dressed
  • complete school & homework assignments

Staff:       

Is a group of  volunteers from the community. The staff is expected to::

  • teach classes and guide activities
  • coach the students with regards to acceptable behavior
  • deal with unacceptable behavior in a reasonable,  fair & consistent manner.

Desired Outcome:

  • Children will play and learn safely and happily
  • Children will be more expressive in a supportive and positive way
  • Polite, kind, helpful interactions will happen
  • Staff  to spend time and energy in academic and activities pursuits benefiting the students
  • Parents will have happier children at home and be pleased with good behavior observed when visiting the school.

Behavioral Referral White Slips:

  •  Inappropriate behavior/violence will not be tolerated, and may result in suspension or dismissal from current and future school session

A sequential set of consequences will take place when behavioral problems arise. 

  • Upon the first infraction, the student receives a Behavior Referral/ white slip noting the circumstances observed.  The classroom teacher files this form for future reference. 
  • Parents will be notified if a child receives a white slip.  
  • Parents' positive and supportive input is a necessary component of this program.  Should a parent receives a notification of a behavior concern, please take the time to discuss, teach and reinforce how your child can improve behavior in the future.
  • Parents are to communicate corrective action taken by signing the bottom section of the slip.  Home and school working together can establish firm yet supportive control and help solve problems for your child and the school.  
  • A home/school partner ship is an effective approach to making a permanent difference.
  • In-School Actions may include:  1.     Informal talk 2.    Parental involvement   3.     Withdrawal of privileges  4.  Other appropriate consequences 5.      Extra assignments  6.     Class exclusion   7.   In-school suspension    
  • Should a student receive another white slip, parents will be contacted by telephone by the principal/ classroom teacher to discuss the problem and seek solutions.  
  • A set of 3 Behavioral Referral Slips may result in one of the following consequences: 1.  Parental/school meeting  2.   in-school suspension  3. at home suspension  4.   withdrawal of privileges ( trips, special events)  4. loss of outdoor time  5. Expulsion 
  • We trust that you will be supportive of these efforts to provide a safe and happy learning environment for your child.
  • Most of our students are well-behaved and we do not want the unacceptable actions of a few to jeopardize the well-being of the majority.  
  • We believe that correction of minor incidents will lessen the opportunity for simple problems to escalate into major concerns.
