    Our goal in Room 23 is to make the classroom a fun, safe, and
    exciting place where students can't wait to come back! 
    Daily practice of class and school procedures will help your child to feel
    secure in his or her new learning environment and
    encourage personal responsibility and a love of learning.
    In order for every student to have a great year of fun and learning,
    certain standards of behavior are expected of each student.
    In Room 23, we expect students to "give us 5" :
    1- Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself.
    2- Be polite.
    3 - Listen.
    4 - Follow directions the 1st time.
    5 - Raise your hand to speak.

    • Students can also earn "Parrot Dollars" for positive behavior, and purchase items from the school rewards shop!
    • Consequences could include quiet lunch, silent recess walk, and/or a note home.
    • We NEVER use snack/food as a reward or punishment.

    We want each student to feel welcome and want to be at school, so we have declared Room 23 a

    We frequently discuss as a class what bullying (physical and verbal) is...
    Why we should not do it, and what to do about it.

    sheet will be marked with one of the following colors to let you know how
    your child's behavior was for the day.
    GREEN- Go, good behavior
    YELLOW- Caution, behavior off task, needs improvement
    RED- Stop, behavior needs to be changed
