Classroom and School-Wide Rules

kids


The rules of the classroom and the school are: 
 Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.


  • School-wide positive reinforcement:  Blumfield Elementary has four different positive reinforcement programs:  
  •     * Blumfield Stars:  If a staff member sees a student following and modeling our school rules, he/she can give the student a Blumfield Star.  Students enter these stars into a drawing to win a book from the office.   All students who receive a star will also get their name listed on the Blumfield website.  
  •     * Blumfield Tokens:  If a staff member sees a student following and modeling our school rules, he/she can give the student a Blumfield Token.  Students can save up their tokens and purchase items at our Blumfield store.  
  •     * Positive Performance Notes:  Once a student accumulates 4 positive notes from staff members, he/she gets to go out to eat lunch with the principal, Mr. Lewis.   Copies of the performance notes will go home for you to see.
  •     * "Paws"itively the Best Bracelet:  This bracelet is given to students by their classroom teachers in recognition of responsible, respectful, and safe behavior.  A bracelet wearer will be entitled to certain privileges, such as getting drinks without asking, being first in line, etc.
  • Class incentive parties:  Each day that a student remains on a green card, he/she will receive a stamp on their card.  At the end of the month, we will have a class party (popcorn/movie, game day, extra recess, etc).  In order to attend the full party, students must have a certain number of stamps on their green cards.
  • By rewarding positive behaviors, I am hoping to send the message to my students that I do notice and appreciate their efforts.  It is also my intention to make students aware of the types of behaviors that I like and want to see in my room.   

  Consequences
  • Green/Yellow/Red Cards:  Each student starts the day off with a green card.  When a student is not following our school rules, he/she will receive a yellow card.  This is a warning, and it means the student needs to slow down and make a change.  If the student continues to disregard the rules, he/she will receive a red card. Parents will be notified when behaviors have become disruptive.  Inappropriate student behaviors are documented (using our school-wide behavior forms) and turned in at the office.
  • **If a student receives a warning and then makes an appropriate change to their behavior, they will receive a chance to move back to green.  If inappropriate behaviors persist, they will move to red.  
  • **Every day that a student remains on a green card, he/she will receive a stamp on their card.  Students will need to have reached a certain number of stamps on their green cards in order to attend our class incentive parties.  
  •  **When a student ends the day on a red card, a note will go home explaining what happened and it will need to get signed by a parent and returned to school the next day.  This helps with communication so that you are aware of the behaviors happening at school.
