Our Class Constitution
Mrs. Albaugh’s Bill of Rights
Why we need rules: We must have a system of rules and consequences in our classroom because we all have a right to a safe, welcome, and comfortable learning environment. We choose to follow these guidelines, because they promote very basic, valuable behaviors that invite honor, respect, and responsibility on the part of every student in our class.
We, the kids of Room 10, want our classroom to be a
In our classroom please . . .
1. . . . be respectful.
2. . . . be responsible,
3. . . . be trustworthy.
4. . . . be safe.
If I see you following the guidelines, I love to celebrate it. So expect these things if I catch you being good.
- Become a class model for the behavior
- Share student Brag Box compliments
- Send happy postcard home
- Call home
If you choose not to follow any of the guidelines, there will be consequences for your decision. I will make clear which guideline you are choosing not to follow. There may be extreme situations where I may have to jump consequences, even send you immediately to the principal. I will always give you a clean slate every day. The consequences are based on a card system, on which students will describe the choice they made:
- Verbal warning
- 1st card given – I keep
- 2nd card given – I send both home to be signed by parents and returned
- 3rd card given – you give to Mr. Niemeyer, then take all three home to be signed by parents and returned
