Behavior / Discipline Policy
▶The following Behavior Policy is in use each and every day in 5th grade.
1st offense —– verbal warning
2nd offense —— tally on Behavior Chart
3rd offense ——- another tally and write broken rule 15 times
4th offense —– “Think Sheet” to be completed and signed by parents (email to parents)

▶The goal of this policy is to focus on good, Christian behaviors.
▶Each and every day is a new opportunity for students to start fresh.
▶Homework will be given/assigned 2-3 times per week.
* The amount will vary daily depending on what needs to be practiced further.
* Sometimes the amount will reflect things not finished during the day as well.
▶Please make sure to check the website and/or the Homework Hotline for due dates as some things are due on different days to allow balance and a sense of responsibility. This also helps the students focus on organizational skills.

“Lunch Bunch” (grades 5-8)
▶If your child has a missing assignment, s/he will be sent to the new “Lunch Bunch” during their lunch/recess time. At the Lunch Bunch, your child will be required to complete the missing assignment while eating their lunch. Your child will have one week to complete the missing assignment during the Lunch Bunch. Missing Assignments can be from any class, including Music, Spanish, Art, etc.
▶If the assignment is still not completed at the week’s end, your child may be required to attend a meeting with their teacher(s) to discuss an Intervention Action Plan. This meeting will be required for students missing 10-19 assignments, cumulatively per quarter. Students missing 20 to 24 assignments will be required to meet with parents, teachers, and Mrs. Koepke. If the amount of missing work exceeds 25, a meeting with Father Javier may be requested.
1-9 Lunch Bunch
10-19 Lunch Bunch / Conference with Teachers to discuss Action Plan
20-24 Lunch Bunch / Conference with Teachers, Parents, and Mrs. Koepke
25 + Lunch Bunch / Conference with Teachers, Parents, Mrs. Koepke, and Father Javier
▶If an assignment is not turned in or significantly late, only partial credit may be given at the individual teacher’s discretion. All assignments are due the week before the end of the quarter. If there are any questions or issues, we encourage parents to set up a meeting with your child and the teacher before the grade is finalized. Our goal is for students to take responsibility for keeping up with their assigned classwork.
▶We are very excited about this chance for our students to be successful and develop strong work habits. If you have any questions, please contact one of us.
