  8. Rewards:
    1. I love rewarding students for following directions!
    2. If you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, expect a reward!
    3. Often, I will email parents/guardians to brag about your behavior.

Three Basic Rules for an amazing year:

  1. Follow the directions the first time given
  2. Raise your hand and wait for permission
  3. Show respect for your peers, all adults, and yourself
