Kindergarten Discipline Procedure
Each Kindergarten classroom will teach the first 12 lessons in The Power of Three curriculum created by Dan Mades. The Power of Three creates a common language and processing strategy that can be used with every student. The lessons help the students understand and process their "big feelings" so that they can make positive choices that will enable them to become more successful. If students struggle after the first 12 lessons and continue to exhibit verbal or physical behaviors, the curriculum offers a plan for the next intervention for the student(s). The Power of Three will work in tandem with our Behavior Intervention Response Team (BIRT).
At Milaca Elementary School we use Take 10s and Discipline Referrals to document student behaviors that are repetitive and/or severe in nature. If your child receives a Take 10 or a Discipline Referral, please sign it and have your child return it to school the following day. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the person who assigned the Take 10 or Discipline Referral. We appreciate all of your support!
When cleaning out closets, cupboards, or bedrooms ~ please keep your child's Kindergarten teacher in mind! We LOVE donations for our classroom store (McDonald's toys, cars, and any other small items, etc.).
