Classroom Rules and Behavior
Discipline Plan and Classroom Rules
I am looking forward to having your child in my classroom. I have full faith in the students of this class that they will show mutual respect toward both me as the teacher and toward other students. I want school this year to be a positive experience for your child. I am sure that between your child’s motivation to do well, your very important support, and my efforts as his or her teacher, we can make it a success. My classroom discipline plan relies on students developing good self discipline. This will help them to achieve many goals in life. Learning how to make the proper behavioral choices in life is an important lesson to learn. With our whole class working together to follow this plan it will be conducive toward a productive classroom environment where students feel safe and learning is optimized.

Listen to the teacher and follow her directions.
Be a friend to everyone, simply treat everyone like you would like them to treat you.
Take care of our classroom and all the materials in it, whether they belong to the school or someone else.
I want to create a constructive learning atmosphere for all the students in the classroom. I will go over the class rules and consequences several times in class as well as having abbreviated forms of them posted as a reference for the students. However, I feel it would be beneficial for you as a family to discuss these class rules together.
Thank you for assisting me in getting our school year off to a positive start conducive to learning.
