Promoting Positive School Climate

Schoolwide Student Behavior Award Systems

At Reynolds, all staff members are encouraged to teach, model, reinforce, and recognize positive student behaviors, but we also wanted to build-in some school-wide recognition programs as well:

Caught in the Act Award- For use any time a staff member would like to recognize an individual for showing good manners, empathy, kindness, hard work, etc. Students will receive brags and other positive recognition
throughout the school year for these positive behavior traits.  

After School Chats- "What's in your backpack?"  Greet your child each day with this question.  You will discover a lot about what happened in school during the day. Set aside time each evening to go through your child's folder and ask about their day.
Be There!- Regular attendance in elementary school sets up a good pattern for your child's entire school year. Show them that school comes first by scheduling routine doctor and dentist appointments for after school or over school breaks.  
Notice- We will be focusing on kindness all year long at Franklin Elementary.  When you see your youngster acting kind or respectful, let them know you noticed!  Your words and attention will encourage them. When they come home with BRAGS from school, make a BIG deal!
