Color Action Expectations/Consequences

Yellow-Slow down It is a warning.
Red- Stop Student will receive a time out and a letter home.
Please ask your child how he/she did on a daily basis to show that there is an expectation at home that their behavior at school is important. By setting up rewards and consequences at home helps support the program at school.
VIP - Folders are sent home everyday. Please empty out the contents on a daily basis and send the envelope back to school.
Current Weekly Reminders:
**Please review the day - everyday! Please be sure to ask your child about their day. Check their VIP folder, ask them about songs, books, snacks, what alphabet letter they are learning about, and what color day they had! This review provides amazing cognitive development, including verbal skills, and signals to your child that you are aware and interested in what is going on. This shows them that who they are and and what choices they are making is important to you!
**A healthy breakfast, lots of sleep, a place to look through books, and opportunities to practice listening and following directions is an important part of your child's everyday routine.
