11  We all use positive disciple in our classrooms. Each teacher has their own method of positive disciple. When students are being good listeners, following directions and doing their personal best each day they will be rewarded. This form of positive discipline works the majority of the time. If we continue to have a behavioral issue with your child you will be notified.  All children are going to make mistakes and that is how they learn. If a note does come home please don’t panic and realize that we all learn from our mistakes.  We really believe by having the students work hard to make “good choices” in our classroom.
