In order to provide a safe environment where all students can learn, the junior high students will follow the Saint Francis de Sales Code of Conduct as outlined in the handbook. There will be rewards for those students who consistently follow the Code of Conduct and consequences for those who do not.
The junior high team uses Class Dojo to aknowledge both positive and negative behavior in the classroom. The students can earn Dojo points from their teacher or other staff members for good behavior. Several times throughout the year students can use their Dojo points to purchase rewards or be entered into drawings.
Our basic tenet is “Students have a right to learn and teachers have the right to teach.” Any student interfering with this basic belief is subject to the following reprimands:
Students will receive a check for each behavior infraction. Each check comes with a corresponding consequence
A more detailed explanation of the check system and its rewards and consequences will be sent home toward the end of the week.
Please review the Parent/Student Handbook for specifics regarding uniforms and behavior expectations.
LABEL EVERYTHING: Please write your child’s name on EVERYTHING.
Your child’s items look just like everyone else’s. Things get lost, misplaced or accidentally picked up by someone else, especially clothing: Gym clothes, sweaters, jackets, etc.
