Here at Muhlenberg Elementary Center, we have a school wide "High Five" system. The students can earn "High Five" notes when they are found following the High Five Rules. Every month, the notes are handed in and students will be picked randomly to receive prizes based on their awesome behavior, as well as receiving rewards for being a 'High Five' student in my classroom.High Five Rules
Be There, Be Ready
Use Self ControlClip It!Students will use a clip system to monitor student behavior. I strongly believe in positive reinforcement and this system allows students to be reward for their hard work and discourages negative behaviors.
Each child has a clip that can move up or down our behavior chart throughout the day. (Pink, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red) The chart is as follows:
Pink – Super Student
The Super Student level is reserved for outstanding behavior. A student who reaches this level will earn a special note home, and a jewel on his/her clip. After five jewels, clips will be retired to the “hall of fame” and a new clip will be given!
Purple- Great Job
Students can move to the Great Job level for continuing to display good behavior. You should be very proud of your child for reaching this level!
Blue – Good Choices
Students will move to the Good Choices level for showing that they are making the right behavior decisions! Ending the day on this level is great!
Green – Ready to Learn
Every student will start the day on the Ready to Learn level. As the day goes on, clips will be moved up and down, based on behavior. This level is a good one to be on!
Yellow – Think About It
A student will be moved to the Think About It level as a warning about his/her behavior, and a reminder to follow the rules.
Orange – Teacher’s Choice
Students who continue to display poor behavior can move down to the Teacher’s Choice level. Here, the teacher can decide what action to take.
Red – Parent Contact
When a student moves to the Parent Contact level, the teacher will notify parents via note or phone call. A visit to principal or vice principal’s office might also be in order.
