School-Wide Policies and Expectations
Emerson Elementary is a PBS (Positive Behavior Support) School. Each PBS school evaluates their behavior needs and develops a matrix of behaviors for various settings based on these needs. Students in all grade levels are expected to follow these guidelines in all settings. Emerson's main objective is for our students to SOAR (Show Respect, Observe Safety, Accept Responsibility, and Resolve Conflict). Students are able to earn SOARing Eagle tickets for following these procedures from any adult in the school building. These tickets go into a drawing for prizes during our weekly SOAR Assemblies.
Using our school-wide policies, our class developed a classroom compact with reasonable expectations for our classroom.
