We are working together to keep our positive culture rolling here at the Crisafulli School. The kind, caring, and supportive community here at the JAC is a result of our Code of Conduct: "PAWS 4 Peace." Each day as the students come into school, we ask them to PAWS and remember that we strive to be a peaceful community in all aspects of the school day (Classrooms, IA Classes, Recess/Lunch, the Bus, Before School Care, and at After School Programs). We ask that our students remember the Power of their words, be Accepting of others, be Willing to help others, and demonstrate Self-Control, which includes being respectful to all adults and community members at JAC.
We have created a way to recognize students for following PAWS and making good choices throughout the day. Crisafulli School Staff will be giving out "Caught Making Good Choices" Coupons! A student will be given a coupon when an adult recognizes him/her making a good choice and going above and beyond. Once the coupon is presented to the student, he/she will then have the opportunity to visit the office. During this time, a positive phone call will be made home to the family. The students will then take the coupon home (to be displayed on the refrigerator for all to see).
We have already had the pleasure of making four positive phone calls home over the last week, which is a terrific feeling. A few examples of reasons for which a student received a coupon include: making a new student feel included at recess each day; noticing a classmate did not have a partner and left a group of 3 to be their partner; giving a classmate the last pick notebook; and walking away from a challenging situation on the playground.
We look forward to giving out more "Caught Making Good Choices" coupons, and making positive phone calls home.
