SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL GOAL

WEEK 20: 01/06-01/10//2020 Self Awareness Skills

I will use my words to ask for help when I need it.

 

DRESS CODE

At JMS, we follow and enforce the District Dress Code Policy. Therefore, “hats, caps, bandannas, sweatbands, sunglasses, pajama pants, slippers, or shoes with wheels attached to the bottom shall not be worn in the buildings.”

In addition, jackets, sweatshirts, & hoodies should not be worn around the waist. Hoodies and jackets are not allowed in the classroom. Sweaters must be a solid color with no zippers or hoods. Layered shirts under your polo must be a solid color.

All personal grooming items should be kept in your locker. This includes combs, brushes, picks, cologne, lotion, lip gloss, glitter, sprays, etc. Purses and bookbags may not be carried to classrooms.

 

LOCKERS

You may access your locker before school, before lunch, after lunch, and after school. You should not share your locker or your locker combination with anyone. Keep your locker locked and not set to open!

 

REMINDERS


  • Students are to bring their binder and school supplies to all of their classes.

  • Remember to use Voice Level One during passing time.

  • Get all of your forms signed and returned — classroom management forms & AUPs!

  • Always carry your planner to class and fill it out completely.

  • If it's not your lip gloss, you should not be touching it! If you are taking someone's lip gloss and stomping on it to make it explode, there will be consequences.

 

NEW ENTRANCE PROCEDURE

As always, students will be lining up outside or in the gym prior to the start time for school. You will now enter the building at 7:55AM instead of 7:50AM. Once inside, you must go directly to your locker and then move quickly to your classroom. If you do not pick up your SBC sheet in the cafeteria during breakfast, you may get one from your teacher.

Once your are in the classroom, you are in the classroom. You will not be allowed to leave the classroom.
