It is the philosophy, as well as goal, of the sixth grade teachers to teach the whole child – spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, morally and physically. The discipline program is designed to motivate the student to behave in a responsible and moral manner.
If a child chooses to misbehave, a behavior demerit will be sent home that day. Demerits accumulate each six weeks and may result in a detention.
For students that demonstrate good behavior and responsibility, there will be rewards such as free dress days and special treats.
