Behavior Expectations

Respectful, Responsible, Ready-to-learn Behaviors

School Wide Expectations


Students should enter our school with the knowledge that they are responsible for their own behaviors-positive and negative and their consequences.

Students will be responsible for taking care of their own person, materials, and maintaining a safe learning environment.


Paying attention to one’s own actions and mindful of the consequences of intolerance for students who are different academically and socially.

This includes maintaining rules, and keeping the classroom respectful and safe.

Using positive reinforcement when dealing with confrontation.

Ready to Learn

Stakeholders should display a positive outlook concerning the school climate.

Positive thinking=positive results Be prepared and attentive
