Hello and welcome to our classroom.  My name is Mrs. Davenport and I will be your child's teacher for the 2016-2017 school year.  As a teacher, I hope to build a foundation for life-long learning and to help my students become independent learners.  I believe in providing them with an environment that will enable him/her to explore, to develop problem solving skills, to interact with his/her peers as well as to become a caring adult and to learn by doing.  I am looking forward to an exciting and prosperous school year and with your help it will be a success.  Thank You!

Discipline Plan

In order to maintain a classroom that allows all children to learn, I have developed a classroom discipline plan.  Please discuss the following rules, consequences, and rewards with your child. 

RULES:

1.  Students will listen to and follow directions.

2.  Students will share materials.

3.  Students will take turns.

4.  Students will raise their hand when he/she wants to speak.

CONSEQUENCES:  If a student chooses not to follow these rules:

1st consequence-He /she will receive a verbal warning.

2nd consequence-Their clothespin will be moved from the green face (happy) to the yellow face(serious)-5 minutes in time out.

3rd consequence-Their clothespin will be moved from the yellow face (serious) to the red face (sad-10 minutes in time out).

4th consequence-A note will be sent home to the parents.

5th consequence-A parent conference will be held.

Severe misbehavior such as repeated minor violations of classroom/school rules and Level 1 offenses or Level 2 offenses will result in the student being immediately sent to the assistant principal.

Students who behave appropriately will be positively rewarded with:  verbal praise, happy notes, stickers, cubby cash and treats from the goodie bag.

It is in your child's best interest that we work together in relationship to his/her schooling.  I have discussed this plan with all the students in my class, but I would appreciate it if you would review the rules, consequences, and rewards with your child.  Thank you for your support.
