Discipline Guidelines

Dear Parents,

I am so excited about sharing this year with your child!  In addition to academics, your child will learn and develop many skills this year including responsibility, making good choices, and accepting consequences.  Positive behavior is so important for an effective learning environment.  In order to help establish this positive atmosphere within our classroom, we have the following Behavior Management Plan.    

Classroom Expectations:

  1.   BE RESPECTFUL  Be respectful to your teacher and peers.  Always use kind words and actions, be honest and fair, and respect school and others  personal property.  Listen carefully and work quietly without disturbing others.
  2.   BE RESPONSIBLE:  By making positive choices, completing all assignments, and working and playing safely.
  3.   BE ACCOUNTABLE:  There are positive and negative consequences according to your choices.  Make GOOD choices.  
  4.   Obey ALL Fairfield Intermediate school rules and always try your BEST! 

Behavior Consequences:

Each child has his/her name on a conduct display that contains four color levels.  Each day is a new day.  I will mark your child’s daily folder if there has been a color change.  A color change is given after a verbal warning has been given unless the behavior warrants an immediate color change.

Below are the consequences for levels of behavior:


Severe Behavior Clause:

If a child threatens their own safety, the safety of others, or demonstrates severe or chronic misbehavior, they may be immediately referred to the office for disciplinary action.

Good behavior will be rewarded!  I will discuss the management plan with the students in class, but I would appreciate your reviewing it with them at home. Thank you so much for your support!  We will have a great year together!
