This year at Falcon Ridge Elementary we will be using a classroom management technique called THINK TIME to create a positive classroom environment when a student is disrupting the class. The technique emphasizes the seriousness of education, respectfulness of the classroom environment, and the importance of students taking responsibility for their own behavior.
THINK TIME has two parts. The first part is designed to allow the student to focus and gain self-control by either sitting off to the side of the class or moving to another classroom. The second part involves providing the student with feedback about his/her behavior and an opportunity for him or her to plan for future success in the classroom.
If your student is directed to THINK TIME, he/she will be asked to fill out a form describing the incorrect behavior, what should be done differently, which of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids could be used, and the student’s commitment to. This form, when completed, will be signed by the student, teacher, and sent home for you to review. Please sign the form once you have discussed it with your student and return to his/her teacher.
Thank you for your support and cooperation in providing a safe classroom and school environment that is conducive to learning. Feel free to call the school at 801-282-2437 if you should have any questions.
Please help us get students to and from school safely by:
- Using crosswalks on and off the school grounds at all times.
- Picking up and dropping off students in the appropriate designated areas.
- Parking in appropriate places.
- Driving slowly on the school grounds and nearby streets when children are present.
- Being respectful of student and adult safety leaders who are directing traffic.
- Being respectful of other drivers in the lanes and parking lots.
Safety is always our number one concern. We want every child to arrive safely at school and to be picked up from school in a safe manner. With your help, we can make drop off and pick up of students a safe event each day!
Thank you for your efforts in supporting safety, education and the school! We appreciate you!
