What is a tardy? Tardy will be defined as failure to be in the threshold of the classroom door before the bell rings. PERFECT
If you are tardy: Put your ID card in the basket. Your teacher will mark your card as tardy. You will get your card back at the end of class, unless you have had 3 tardies. If you forgot or lost your card, you will get a temporary card.
What if you are tardy 3 times? The teacher will take your card to an administrator who will deal with the issue.
How will we celebrate success? Weekly – a variety of prizes will be given out randomly to those who don’t have tardies (Qdoba, Dairy Queen, McDonald’s, NHS gear, candy, etc.) End of semester – school-wide celebration with food, entertainment and prizes (assuming we make our goal)
An invitation If you would like to share your ideas or you have input, we would like to invite you to attend our North Being North meetings. We are always looking for student voices. See Mr. Thennes for meeting dates.
