ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO PARTICIPATE!!
In our RTI2-B Program students earn tickets, called DOJO points, for positive behavior.
Students are able to spend some of these DOJO points on “Special Days” and these days are listed below. Each student that has 25 points and wishes to participate each month can! The students have to ask their teacher for permission to use their points in order to participate.
Special Days Dates: 1st Wednesday of each month:
Sept. 1 Oct. 6 Nov. 3
Dec. 1 no day in Jan
Feb. 2 March 2
April 6 May 4
Students may choose from:
Stuffed Animal Day
Character Dress Up day
No uniform day
If a student does not follow the rules, they will not be allowed to participate in that special day the rest of the school year. You will be called to bring them a change of clothes and they will still lose their points.
RULES FOR SPECIAL DAYS – 25 points
If a student does not follow the rules, they will not be allowed to participate in that special day the rest of the school year. They will have to change and still lose their points.
Any jersey with uniform pants
Has to have sleeves and if it is mesh they need to wear a shirt under it
It can be their jersey from a sport they have played
STUFFED ANIMAL DAY
Bring favorite stuffed animal to school
CHARACTER DRESS UP DAY
No short dresses unless tights are worn under them
Face paint is fine as long as it goes along with the character
It has to be a character not just jeans and t-shirt. If that is what they want to wear, they can use their tickets for that.
No spaghetti strap shirts or sleeveless – their shoulder and the top part of their arm should be covered like if they were wearing a short sleeve shirt
NO UNIFORM DAY
*Students may wear jeans or jean shorts. No rips or tears...only jean material: no athletic shorts/pants.
*Shirts—no undershirts worn alone, no inappropriate words or things such as guns or skulls, no spaghetti strap shirts, no sleeveless, no cold shoulder. Their shoulder and the top part of their arm should be covered like if they were wearing a short sleeve shirt.
Middleton Elementary School uses the acronym
to define and list expectations of our students. Each area of MES has these expectations posted and students are taught these expectations throughout the school year.
CODE OF CONDUCT
Middleton Elementary School provides each student with a maximum opportunity to acquire an education. NO student has the right to interfere with this opportunity for others by his/her actions, poor manners, or lack of consideration. All rules and regulations are developed and enforced with that thought in mind.
Some rules and regulations are specified by the Board of Education, some are school level, and others are established by the classroom teacher.
There are four basic rules:
1. Be Respectful
2. Be Outstanding
3. Be Accountable
4. Be Responsible
This conduct code was developed to make students, parents, and staff aware of the behavioral expectations for students while attending classes at Middleton Elementary, while attending school sponsored activities, and while riding on transportation provided by the Hardeman County Board of Education.
Middleton Elementary School employs Positive Behavorial Interventions and Supports, or PBIS, to promote positive behavior. We teach our students about good behavior. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment. Students earn points for appropriate behaviors and use these points for rewards offerred throughout the school year.
