Positive behavior is a necessary part of the learning environment. In our class, our main focus will be on respect and responsibility, and we will take time to discuss what these words mean to us as members of our classroom and school community. In order to set great conditions for your child to succeed in life and society children have to understand that are great rewards for great choices and there are consequences for poor choices. We will discuss this as a class during the first week of school and on a continuing basis as needed. We are each responsible for our own choices, and making positive choices will be stressed. Since we will all make mistakes now and then, we will try to see our mistakes as opportunities for positive change and learn from them. Please understand just because a child misbehaves that does not mean their bad kids; its part of learning and growing up and consequences prepare them for the accountability of real life. I will always strive to make our class a positive experience and an environment where all children feel safe, secure and the conditions are set for all students to learn.
I sincerely want what is best for your child. I will handle as much at school as I possible can, however, I will contact you if there seems to be a problem developing. Your cooperationis greatly appreciated!
