1 EPS is a Great Place to Shine 1

2 Evergreen Park School is a Professional Learning Community. The main responsibility of all staff members is to ensure that all children are learning in a safe and orderly environment. 2

3 Evergreen Park School Mission Building a strong foundation for the future Vision Fostering an inclusive environment focusing on respect, fairness and integrity Values Be a good citizen, be kind, be responsible and always do your best 3

4 Effective Discipline “Enforced rules can make the difference between law and order for all and the reign of terror that exists in many schools. If rules vary from one teacher or one setting to another, the students can, with some justification, challenge them. Variations provide an alibi for rule infringements. Consistent enforcement of the code of conduct requires active vigilant supervision and is one of the most effective and economical prevention strategies.” Schools where Everyone Belongs 4

5 Focus on Prevention Discipline isn’t what you do when students misbehave; it is what you do so they won’t. Rules and limits are established so students will understand that some behaviours are strictly out-of-bounds. Revisions and improvements must constantly be made in response to changes in student behaviours and needs. 5

6 EPS is a Great Place to Shine for Elementary (K-4) Sharing and caring Hands are for helping Do the right thing If it hurts; It’s wrong 6

7 For Middle School (5-8) Fairness Caring Respect Responsibility Citizenship Trustworthiness If it hurts; It’s wrong 7

8 Classroom Expectations Post and reinforce class expectations. Students are to clean up after themselves (food, paper, etc., after recess). Gum, sweets, trading cards and toys are asked to be kept at home. Skateboards, heelies and rollerblades should only be used outside school hours. 8

9 Classroom Expectations Arrive on time. If a student is late they should be respectful of the class that is already in session. They should knock on the door and wait to be invited to enter. Lateness—Middle school—(teams/teacher) to decide on a consequence for students who arrive late to class (ex. going to locker, too much time in locker room). Be prepared for class and have necessary supplies/books. Middle school students should get all materials from their lockers for Per. 1 & 2 at morning entry, materials for Per. 3 & 4 before they have their recess break and materials for the afternoon at the end of the lunch break. 9

10 Hallways Walking at all times. When coming up and down the stairwell students need to stay to the right and remain in single file. Transition times need to be quiet. Middle school teachers (6, 7 and 8) need to monitor the hall during transition times to ensure that the noise level is at a minimum. Grades K-6 teachers need to walk with their students to and from their exploratory classes. 10

11 Hallways (con’t) Grades K-6 teachers need to walk with their students to and from their exploratory classes. If you have a prep and you are in grades 7-8 (including exploratory teachers) please walk your students and go pick up your next class a few minutes prior to the end of your prep (same expectation as teachers in grades K-6).

12 Outside: Grades K-6 (Playground – Morning Entrance) Students will line up according to whether their class is upstairs (line up on the left) or downstairs (line up on the right). The doors will open at 8:00 am. One of the duty teachers selects two students to open the doors. These students should be chosen prior to the bell ringing and asked to go and wait inside the building; they will be able to open the doors as soon as the bell rings. Students will stand behind the cement divider. Duty teachers, and EAs will be positioned at the doorway divider. There will be teachers and EAs in the middle of the 2 lines (halfway down and also at the end of the line) to encourage the students to maintain separate lines as they enter. The last teacher on duty entering the building will ensure that the doors are closed and locked. 12

13 Outside: Grades 7-8 (Playground - Morning Entrance) Students are to wait outside until the bell rings. Students enter through the parking lot doors in an orderly manner and go to their lockers to prepare for Per. 1 and 2. The last teacher on duty entering the building will ensure that the doors are closed and locked. 13

14 Morning Entrance (Inclement / Cold Weather) K-1 students will go to the computer room. Grade 2 will go to the library. Grade 3 and 4 students: gather at the back of the cafeteria. Grade 5 and 6 students: sit at tables in the cafeteria. There should be 4 students to a round table Students are not allowed to sit on the window sills Students in the cafeteria will be dismissed 3-4 minutes before the bell Dismissal will start with the grade 3-4 students Grade 5 and 6 students will be dismissed one table at a time. Upon dismissal of each table, students are expected to place their chairs up on the tables if the cafeteria floor gets wet due to rain or snow on students’ boots. 14

15 Morning Entrance (Inclement / Cold Weather) Grade 7 and 8 students are to go directly to room 137 (Tech. 1) and wait for the duty teacher to dismiss them at the bell. Students are not to use the computers at this time. 15

16 Cafeteria Duty - Grades 7-8 Morning Recess 9:45am - 10:00am Students are not to eat their snacks in the hallway; they must wait until they are in the cafeteria. Students should choose a seat and remain in that seat for the duration of the break. Unlike lunch time, there may be more than 4 to a round table. 16

17 Electronic Devices Cell phones and any other kind of electronic devices are to stay in the student’s locker. Students should not carry electronic devices between the hours of 8:00am and 2:35pm (Department of Education Policy 311—District Policy Statement 350). If the expectation is not followed these devices will be taken and kept in the office. A parent must come to school in order to retrieve the electronic device. 17

18 Cafeteria Duty – Grades 7-8 Morning Recess 9:45am - 10:00am At the bell students are to walk in an orderly manner to their class. They are not to go to their lockers. Students serving detention or receiving extra help need to ensure that they have all required materials prior to the 10:00am bell. Only Alphastar students who help on the K-4 playground will be allowed to use their lockers. 18

19 Cafeteria Duty – Grades 7-8 Morning Recess 9:45am - 10:00am A few students will be selected to help place chairs accordingly. At the bell, students who have Tech. (1 or 2) or Physical Education will line up at the back doors of the cafeteria leading to the gymnasium. The receiving teacher will pick them up and walk with them to class. Students are to respect the designated walking path through the gymnasium. 19

20 Indoor Recess / Lunch (Inclement / Cold Weather) Grades K-6 students will remain in their homerooms at recess. Grades 7 and 8 students will go to the cafeteria as usual At lunch, ALL students are to remain in their homerooms during the times when they would normally be outside. No wandering in the hallways!

22 K-2 Cafeteria 11:00am - 11:30am Students sit on their “bottoms” with legs under the table. Round tables sit 4 students. Students should choose a seat and remain in that seat for the duration of the lunch period. Students should stay seated until the teacher instructs them to clean up their trays/garbage and line up. If you order your meal at the cafeteria, you eat your meal in the cafeteria (exception: unopened milk, a cookie or an unopened bag of chips can be taken back to class). 22

23 K-2 Cafeteria 11:00am - 11:30am Students will line up at approx. 11:20am - 11:25am as instructed by the duty teacher and then dismissed to prepare for outside. If at 11:25am all students have finished with their lunch and the cafeteria is empty, the teacher on duty will help the other duty teachers supervise and help students get ready to go outside. 23

24 Gr.3-6 Cafeteria 11:30am - 12:00pm Students sit on their “bottoms” with legs under the table. Round tables sit 4 students. Students should choose a seat and remain in that seat for the duration of the lunch period. Students should stay seated until the teacher instructs them to clean up their trays/garbage and line up. If you order your meal at the cafeteria, you eat your meal in the cafeteria (exception: an unopened milk, a cookie or an unopened bag of chips can be taken back to class). Lunches from home are eaten in the classroom (Gr.3-5). All grade 6 students eat their lunch in the cafeteria. Starting at approx. 11:50am, students may be dismissed to go back to class and get ready to go outside. Grade 6 students are only dismissed at 12:00pm. All grade 3-5 students will stay in their class until the 12:00pm bell. If all students are gone from the cafeteria before 12:00pm, the teacher on duty in the cafeteria will choose to either go to the 3-4 hallway or the 5-6 hallway and help the other teachers on duty prepare the students to go outside. 24

25 Gr.7-8 Cafeteria 12:00pm - 12:30pm Students are to sit in their chairs. Round tables sit 4 students. Students are not to sit on the window sills.

All 7-8 students eat in the cafeteria; students should not be wandering in the 7-8 hallway. 25

26 Food Concerns and Clarifications Any types of beverages are not to be brought back to class. They will be finished in the cafeteria before students are permitted to go back to their classrooms. Only unopened packaged items will be taken back to class (i.e.: cookies, milk, baked chips). Subs and sandwiches bought in the cafeteria will be eaten in the cafeteria. Students in grades 7and 8 are not to bring any food back with them after the 10:00am bell. Food must be eaten prior to leaving the cafeteria. 26

27 Food Concerns and Clarifications Due to medical conditions of various students there is no eating to and from class. Grade 7 and 8 students that have written permission to go home to eat need to enter through the main entrance door upon their return. If they arrive before 12:25pm they are to sit and wait in the cafeteria. In order to maintain a clean school environment gum chewing is not allowed in school. 27

28 Some Friendly Reminders Our school expectation is that students are coming to class prepared and not visiting their lockers during / in between classes. All teachers need to respect dismissal times throughout the day in order to help facilitate quiet and orderly transitions. Teachers need to be at their door when receiving and dismissing their students. 28

29 “ If you want to block certain behaviours from entering your classroom, you have to be at the classroom door when the students are arriving.” It makes a difference!!!!!! 29 Ron Morrish

30 Some Friendly Reminders Students must go to their homeroom at 2:30pm and then be dismissed to go to their lockers when the bell rings at 2:35pm. Bus students that have a locker in the 3-4 wing may exit the building using the staircase leading to the K-4 playground. All teachers need to continue to be visible in and around the school (ex. hallways, intersections, staircases, doors, parking lot doors, outside parking lot, etc.) 30

31 Some Friendly Reminders Students are encouraged to regularly use their assigned entrance door in the morning unless inclement or cold weather. When walking to and from exploratory classes teachers need to stop at the intersection in the hallways. Exploratory teachers need to ensure that the K-5 homeroom teacher is waiting at the door prior to dismissing the class. 31

32 Some Friendly Reminders In the winter, students still need to take off their hats when entering the building. When getting ready to leave the building, students are allowed to wear their winter hats on their way out. 32

33 Some Friendly Reminders Baseball caps are not allowed to be worn in the building at any time, with the exception of hat days. Trading cards and toys are to be left at home. If students want to play math games, they can borrow a deck of cards from their classroom teacher. 33

34 Some Friendly Reminders Educational assistants should not be picking up students from their exploratory classes. Homeroom teachers are expected to walk their children to and from these classes. 34

35 After School Dismissal K-2 Bus students are walked to the bus by their teacher. Daycare students are taken to the cafeteria to be picked up. Walkers are dismissed at the front doors. 35

36 After School Dismissal (Gr.3-4 Hallway) Teachers in grades 3 and 4 will ask their students to collect their personal belongings from the hallway and start getting dressed in their classroom (approx. 2:30pm) prior to the dismissal bell at 2:35pm. Students need to be prepared to exit the building when the bell rings in order to avoid congestion. When the bell rings, students in rooms 215 and 214 will leave the building by the front entrance staircase. All other students in that hallway will leave by the staircase exiting to go to the K-4 playground. Middle school students need to use the main entrance staircase and then walk through the K-1 hallway to get the bus or to meet a younger sibling. Middle school students (along with their teacher) that have lockers in this hallway need to line up near the water fountain. Their teacher will signal to them when it is safe to go to their lockers. 36

37 After School Dismissal (Gr.3-4 Hallway) Teachers are to be visible and help monitor the safe and orderly movement of students within the building and on the grounds from 2:35pm to 2:45pm. 37

38 After School Dismissal (Gr.5-6 Hallway) Students are to be dismissed at 2:35 pm. Students are to exit through the 5 -6 playground door or through the main entrance door. Teachers are to be visible and help with the orderly movement of the students from the building and on the grounds from 2:35pm to 2:45pm. 38

39 After School Dismissal (Gr.7-8 Hallway) Students are to go to their homeroom class at 2:30pm. Students are to be dismissed at 2:35pm when the bell rings. All teachers and administration will be visible and help monitor the safe and orderly movement of the students in the building and on the grounds from 2:35pm to 2:45pm. 39

40 40 Teachers and administration will be visible in and around the school (ex. hallways, intersections, staircases, doors, parking lot doors, outside parking lot, etc…). All teachers will have an assigned place to monitor.

41 Behaviours that will be Modeled by Teachers All beverages need to be in a spill proof thermos. No gum chewing in front of the students. No use of cell phone during class time. During transitions, please use a low voice when communicating with colleagues and students in hallways, and stay on the right hand side of the hallway. Be at your door during transitions. 41

42 Behaviours that will be Modeled by Teachers Respect our district’s dress code. Model what we expect of children (ie: don’t sit on tables and desks, don’t stand on chairs, etc…). Notify your neighbour in case you need to leave your classroom. Be on time (20 minutes before instruction). Leave no earlier than 20 minutes after the 2:45 bus leaves. If there’s an emergency and you need to leave earlier, please advise an administrator. Be on time for you duties. 42

43 Gym Expectations Grades K-4 Arrival: –Homeroom teachers are to bring their students to the gym prepared (appropriate gym attire and footwear). Equipment: Pick two reliable students to go into the equipment room to pick up light equipment. When picking up equipment for outdoors (make sure the equipment is for outdoors, see Mrs. Browne for verification) the teacher is responsible for picking up and returning all equipment Grades 5-8 Arrival: If you have a prep period, you are to walk the students you have to the gym. If possible, pick up students at the end of their gym class. Students are to arrive on time. Students are to change into appropriate gym attire (t-shirt, shorts or sweat pants and indoor sneakers properly laced/attached). No sock feet. Equipment: Staff, please get equipment before class in the morning, recess time or during lunch time. Please do not send a student with a note to get equipment during class time as this interrupts the teaching that is going on. When returning equipment please return to the proper spot. 43

44 Gym Expectations Grades K-4 Dismissal: Homeroom teachers are to pick up their students at the designated area either the office door or cafeteria door. Grades 5-8 Dismissal: Students must change into their regular clothes after gym class. After changing they are to wait in line by the tech. room. At 2:30pm the phys-ed teacher will help the homeroom teacher supervise any remaining students in the locker room and clean up any leftover equipment not already in place. 44

45 Our visibility will improve the behaviours of the students. This will take some time. CONSISTENCY, however, will ensure and bring about success. 45

46 Climate Change Research suggests that it takes approximately three years to change the culture of a school, so be prepared to maintain your efforts. Eventually, most students will stop pushing the limits and realize that certain behaviours are simply not acceptable at school. 46

47 Keys to Success Visibility Consistency Teaching and Modeling Behaviour Continue with what works! 47

48 Thank you for all your work and for all your efforts!!! Your continued support and vigilance will ensure that all students of EPS feel safe in their learning environment. 48

49 Thank You! 49
