Behavior Plan Students begin each day with a green card. Students not following directions/rules must change a card. Yellow is a warning (possible time out) Red means the child will write a note home to describe his/her behaviors, the note will be signed by parents and sent back to school. Students have sticker charts. They can be “caught” doing a good deed or behaving exceptionally well. After the sticker chart is full, they can turn it in for a prize from the prize box.
