Positive Behavior Plan

The Golden Rules

Klondike Elementary Logo

Klondike Elementary students follow the Golden Rules for positive behavior. All students make good choices by showing:

  1. We are responsible.
  2. We are cooperative.
  3. We are respectful.
  4. We do what’s right (show integrity).
  5. We do our best (perseverance).

Positive Consequences:

  1. Students can earn “Good as Gold” tickets from any staff member. If a student is caught doing something out of the ordinary, he/she will receive the ticket.
  2. One student every week will receive a classroom “Nugget Reward.” The Nugget winner will take his/her slip to the office to choose something from the Klondike Treasure Box. The class Nugget winner will also have his/her name printed in the following week’s Nugget Newsletter!
  3. Classrooms also have their own daily and/or weekly reward systems.

Negative Consequences:

Each teacher has a Pocket Chart displayed in his/her classroom. These charts are a visual accounting system of the daily behavior of each child. Each child has a spot on the chart with 6 colored cards. Every morning, each child will start the day with a BLUE card. Cards can be moved for not following any of the five Golden Rules.

  • First offense – green: Verbal warning
  • Second offense – yellow: Loss of recess time (varies by grade)
  • Third offense – orange: Loss of recess time (varies by grade)
  • Fourth offense – red: Lose entire recess and call parents or guardians.
  • Fifth offense – black: Official Office visit

Students may also be sent directly to the office in the event of a serious offense.

Clipboards:

Each classroom has a clipboard with a class roster and discipline forms. This clipboard will travel with the class to lunch, recess, and all specials. This will be used as a behavior tracking device along with the visual classroom chart.

Lanyards:

The adults at Klondike Elementary will be wearing lanyards that contain “Good as Gold” tickets to reward excellent behavior, and “Gray Slips” to be used when a student is in violation of the Golden Rules (a gray ticket will result in the turning of a card).

Each child will record his/her behavior daily by using the communication method chosen by the classroom teacher.
