Did you have a green day?
We use a color-coded system. Each child has an envelope with a stack of cards of 5 different colors: Green, Yellow, Orange, Blue and Red.
GREEN – We begin each day “On Green”…
YELLOW – WARNING
After a few verbal warnings have been given, I will ask that the card in the stack be changed from green to yellow.
ORANGE – SIT AND WATCH
If there are still problems, which were not corrected by changing the card from green to yellow, I will ask that the card be changed again from yellow to ORANGE. For a few minutes the student will not be able to participate in the activity we are doing but can still watch the activity.
BLUE - TIME OUT
If behaviors continue, I will ask the card be changed from orange to blue and your child will then spend a few minutes in another classroom.
RED – ISS-Sent to the Office
If behaviors continue, your child will change his/her card from blue to red and sent directly to the office. Your child will call you and let you know he/she has been sent to the office. If your child is unable to reach you, a letter will be mailed home.
The only time I send a student directly to the office, without changing cards, is if the behavior is severely inappropriate.
Each day’s behaviors will be recorded on the Homework Log/Weekly Assignment sheet. If there are any questions or concerns regarding the Discipline procedures, please feel free to call me (896 – 7153, ext. 1112).
