During the first few days of school I visit each classroom to welcome students, introduce myself and go over some of the basic school rules. I bring a backpack with me filled with examples of items which are appropriate for school and other items which are not allowed at school.
Conducting these presentations in each classroom, as opposed to a school-wide assembly, allows me to interact more closely with students. They feel more comfortable asking questions or for clarification or justification for certain rules.
Throughout the school year I will continue to conduct these "rules talks" with students approximately once a month, or more frequently as the need arises. Clearly defining expectations and continuing to enforce those expectations helps to minimize potential issues and allows students to feel more comfortable at school.
Please take the time to click the "HANDBOOK" link below and read over our school/district rules with your student.
Thank you for your support! If you have any questions or would like clarification on any procedure or practice please contact me.
