C.A.R.E. ceremonies

over 2 years ago

At the end of each nine weeks, we have a CARE ceremony. During this ceremony, we recognize students for having good behavior, perfect attendance, extra mile (being here bell to bell), Honor Roll (All A's, A's and B's and all B's), and any Accelerated Reader awards that they have earned. We want all students to be recognized for their good efforts. Parents and family members are always welcome and invited to attend. Ceremonies take place during your child's CAMP (Computer, Art, Music, or PE) time.


C.A.R.E. is an acronym for Conflicts Are Resolved Easily. The CARE program is our school wide discipline plan. Students are able to earn 3 points each day for making good choices. The first point is based on behavior from 8:00 am to 10:30 am, the second point from 10:30 to 12:30 and the third point 12:30 to 3:00pm. Students that have clips on green or yellow, earn a CARE point for each time period. Most weeks we have 5 days of school, therefore, a student may earn 3 points a day totaling 15 points per week. There are also 3 bonus points that students can earn. One bonus point is for returning their C.A.R.E. report signed by Wednesday each week. The 2nd bonus point is for being present at school each day of the week and the 3rd bonus point is up to the teacher's discretion. With bonus points students can earn up to 18 possible points. Each Friday we have Fun Friday 2:15 to 2:45. We would love for you to come and join us! Students that have earned 15 points are able to participate in the activities. Students that do not earn Fun Friday, have to sit out.
