We have a matrix (click here to see the school matrix) that helps to remind students of expected behaviors in various places in the school: classroom, hallways, bathrooms, assemblies, playgrounds and at lunchtime. For each one of these areas, we have explicit behaviours that are expected in relation to ourselves, each other and this place.
We encourage our families to adopt our school belief at home too. We have created a template for families to use at home (click here to see the home matrix). Simply print the matrix and work with your children to create expected behaviours in each of the three category areas. There are examples on the matrix. When you are done, you can post the matrix on the fridge.
Have fun showing what you care about at home!!
