Management System in 5th Grade

    tickets. These tickets are saved up and then
    used to buy items from the 5th grade store or for
    entrance into special 5th grade events.
  • Consequences of inappropriate behavior include
    loss of recess time and lonely lunch.

Workshop Terminology
  • The introduction of workshop procedures into
    our curriculum has given us new terminology!
    Wed like to share this terminology with our
    parents so that you might better understand your
    student when he/she uses the terms in discussing
    whats going on in school with you.

Listen for these terms in conversations with your
students
  • Routinesindividual course timelines even as
    student schedules change, the routines in each
