    Panthers show Respect with Pawsitive Behavior

    Thoreau Park Elementary will use a clip chart to monitor student
    behavior. A clip chart is a great tool that allows students to be
    rewarded for positive behavior, while discouraging negative
    behavior. Each student has a clothespin, or clip, with his or her name on it.
    Everyone will start on Ready to Learn at the beginning of each
    day; clips can be moved up and down throughout the day based on
    behavior. Students will ideally make good choices throughout the day. If so,
    they remain on Ready to Learn of the clip chart. If students go
    above and beyond they may move their clothespin up the clip
    chart; if they make poor choices, they will be asked to move their
    clothespin down.

    SUPER STUDENT! - The Super Student level is reached for
    outstanding behavior. A student who reaches this level will earn a
    special note home.

    ROLE MODEL - Students can move to the Role Model level for
    continuing to display positive behavior. You should be very proud of
    your child for reaching this level.

    GOOD CHOICES - Students will move to the Good Choices level for
    showing that they are making the right behavior decisions. Ending
    the day on this level is great!

    READY TO LEARN - Every student will start the day on the Ready
    to Learn level. As the day goes on, clips can be moved up and
    down, based on behavior choices. This level is a good one to be on.

    THINK ABOUT IT - A student will be moved to the Think About It
    level as a warning about his/her behavior. It asks them to think
    about their behavior and why it’s not correct; this is a reminder to
    slow down and follow the rules.

    TEACHER’S CHOICE - Students who continue to display poor
    behavior can move down to the Teacher’s Choice level. Here, the
    teacher can decide what action to take. Loss of privileges such as
    recess or center time may be an appropriate choice. The student
    will also complete a behavior reflection sheet.

    PARENT CONTACT - When a student moves to the Parent Contact
    level, the teacher will notify parents via note or phone call. A visit
    to the principal’s office might also be in order. Students on this
    level may also lose recess time, etc.
    PBIS Clip it Chart
    The Go Green Lottery has begun at Thoreau Park. All students who remain on green or above in our behavior management program (Clip It) 80% of the month have the opportunity to be entered into the lottery for a yard sign. Each month names will be drawn by grade level so we will have 5 winners a month. Continue to encourage your child to be READY TO LEARN. Remember GREEN IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE!
