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.
