Behavior Expectations at Asbury
P.B.I.S & Classroom Discipline Policy:
Asbury has adopted a positive behavior support (PBIS) model. Students are expected to do their BEST throughout the day, so that their learning environment is a positive one. Students should be able to tell you what each letter in our motto stands for:
B= Be kind and caring, E= Excel in learning, S= Show Respect, T= take Responsibility.
Students caught doing a good job receive a feather, which can come from any staff member. If your student has a feather - ask what it was for. They should be able to tell you!
We are also always working on building our classroom community! We use the 5 Tribe agreements that guide our rights and responsibilities in and out of the classroom.They are: 1. Right to pass 2. Mutual Respect 3. Attentive Listening 4. No Put Downs 5. Personal best
Ask your child what they mean and how they use them at school and at home!
We LOVE to recognize positive behavior when it occurs, however, sometimes, consequences for negative or disruptive behavior must take place. Students have the opportunity throughout the day to move up or down on our behavior ladder. Every student starts out with a Great Day (level 3). If students are disruptive, not following directions, not being kind or caring, etc… they are given one warning, after which they must move their name down to a level 2, 1, and finally (if necessary ) a refocus. If a student lands on a refocus, they must fill out a sheet explaining the problem behavior and how they might change it next time. This must be signed by a parent or guardian. It is the student’s responsibility to speak with you about what happened. If it is not returned, the student will miss recess, and a phone call will go home. If they receive three or more, they will complete a problem solving sheet in the office. If the behavior continues, a conference will be called with parents, and a behavior plan will need to be implemented.
There is good news! If your student is caught doing a great job throughout the day, they can move up on the ladder (levels 4, 5) and eventually to Super Star, where they have a chance at our weekly classroom reward. Students can move up or down depending on their choices in school. For example, if a student is having a difficult time in the morning, and behavior changes, they have every opportunity to end the day on a positive note, and vice versa.
