Team Expectations For All…

  • Be safe

  • Be respectful

  • Be responsible

Students earn AVALANCHE BUCKS for safe, respectful, and responsible behavior. These are used as raffle tickets every Wednesday for small prizes during a homeroom raffle.

The 6th Grade Transition…


  • Homework Agenda:

    • Use the agenda for writing when they have and do not have homework in each class daily

    • Assignments are posted in each class, and students are given time to write their assignments in each class.

    • A great tool to use at home to check off your child’s assignments when completed

  • Team Website:

    • Check the team website daily to double-check homework and announcements from the team and classroom teachers

  • Cole Time:

    • 25 minutes 4 days a week for silent reading time, organizational time, and extra time with Avalanche teachers.

      See separate flyer regarding organizational skills & how to help your child study

The 6th Grade Transition…(continued)


  • Locker Times—Students have been assigned locker times. Top lockers go to lockers before the even numbered periods + bottom lockers before the odd numbered periods.

    • When off team, students are allowed to go to their locker during an unscheduled time.

  • Gotta Go Passes—Fosters preparedness and efficient time management. (see next slide)

  • Yellow Cards + Red Cards

    • Yellow cards result in a 5 minute lunch detention and are issued if a student doesn’t correct a behavior after a warning. This results in a behavior reflection with a parent signature due the next day.

    • Red cards are issued if a student doesn’t correct the same behavior after receiving a yellow card or if they have a major behavior infraction. This results in a full after school or lunch detention, and a parent signature.

Definitions of Lateness & Preparedness

  • Preparedness:

  • Books

  • Binders

  • Homework Agenda

  • Completed homework

  • Writing Utensil

  • Other materials needed for each class (calculator, etc)

  • Lateness:

  • Be on time—seated before the lesson begins

Gotta Go Passes:

These are given to students to help with lateness and preparedness. Students relinquish a pass to go to locker or bathroom, or if they are late to class without a pass from another teacher

Keeping Track of Assignments: Homework Agendas

  • Students should bring the following to each class

    • Agenda

    • Pencil case

    • Loose leaf paper

    • Homework folder
