Classroom Rules
Our school uses the Character Counts program to help children take responsibility for their behaviors. We are also using the Rainbow Clip System in our room.

Character Counts Triats:
  • Trustworthy (Be honest; don’t cheat or steal)
  • Respectful (Treat others with respect; be considerate of the feelings of others.)
  • Responsible (Do what you are supposed to do)
  • Fair (Take turns and share)
  • Caring (Be compassionate and show you care; forgive others)
  • Show good citizenship (Cooperate; obey the rules)

Clip System:
Each student has a clothes pin on our chart in the 'Ready to Learn' position.  As students make positive choices in their education they will clip up.  If your students choose to make negative choices, they will clip down.  This is an on going all day chart, so if a student has a poor morning, it doesn't mean he/she can't have a better afternoon and clip up.  At the end of the day, students will write on their Character Card what color they end on for the day.  The next day each students will be back on 'Ready to Learn'.  Below are the colors for our chart.
  • Top of the Chart (Pink)
  • Great Job (blue)
  • Ready to Learn (green)
  • Slow Down (yellow)
  • Think About It (orange)
  • Parent Contact (red)
