• Class Expectations and Procedures

    Bobcat Town

    Students earn money based on behavior, attendance, academic excellence, and citizenship.  Students pay rent and utilities monthly.  Students will have an opportunity to spend the money that they have earned throughout the year at the Bobcat Market.  The market will be held three times a year.

    Responsibility Plan

    Our plan this year is reinforced through our Bobcat Town Program.  Students will be awarded by following the Harelson Code of Conduct and fined if the rules are not followed.

    1st fine: Warning

    3rd fine:  Parent Contact

    Serious infractions that fall outside of our Bobcat Buck system will be dealt with separately.
