In 5th grade we have a classroom community. We run our classrooms as a mini community. Students will meet weekly to discuss community classroom accomplishments, concerns and questions.
Students will apply for jobs every quarter. They are expected to complete their responsibilities and then they will get paid weekly.
Each job has a different rate of pay.
Students can receive fines at different rates as well.
An example is if they forget to push in their chairs, then they receive a $2 fine.
Students can receive bonuses!
An example is if they receive a scholar tag then they will get a $2 bonus!
In 5th grade we have the step system. Students will document each step (if they receive any) in their agenda throughout the school day. Every Friday your child will bring their agendas home to get signed by you. Please make sure they are returned on Monday.
