principal 200 club
Principal 200 Club
  • Tickets are awarded to individual students by teachers and support staff for positive behaviors.
  • Students are rewarded by signing their name in the principal’s book & calling home to report the positive behavior to their parent.
  • Students draw a number and their name is placed on that number on a grid. Once there are ten students in a row, those ten get a larger reward like going out to lunch with the principal.
stewart stars
Stewart Stars
  • Stewart Stars are awarded to a student or whole class for following school rules & procedures.
  • The students work hard to earn the stars by walking in the halls, showing good assembly behavior, helping others, etc.
  • The student gives the star to their teacher.
  • Once a class has ten stars, their class name is put in for a monthly drawing for principal parties and publically displayed in the lunch room.
principal parties
Principal Parties
  • Principal Parties are earned for whole classes. Once a class has earned ten Stewart Stars, the class name is put in for a drawing to earn a Principal Party.
  • Classes can earn several chances for the opportunity for a principal party.
  • A monthly drawing is held, and the principal does a short activity with the lucky classes.
student of the week
Student of the Week
  • Teachers nominate a male and a female from their class once throughout the year.
  • The student names are announced weekly through schoolwide announcements.
  • The student’s photo and a short description of their positive behavior is posted in a display case.
faculty meeting staff prizes drawings
Faculty Meeting Staff Prizes Drawings
  • Faculty and staff are awarded through monthly drawings for their participation in handing out positives to students.
  • Faculty and staff are given a small bag with stars. Once they have handed out all of their stars, they turn the bag in to be refilled.
  • Their name is then put in for a drawing for prizes awarded at faculty meeting.
  • When a name is drawn, that teacher spins for a prize.
think time
Think Time
  • Think Time is a consequence for not following classroom or school procedures.
  • Teachers are to give two precision commands to the student. If the student does not follow the commands, they are given a Think Time pass and are to go to a different classroom where they have time to think about their behavior.
  • While in Think Time, the student fills out a paper regarding what their behavior was and how they should have acted before they can return to class.
  • A fourth time in Think Time becomes an office referral.
hallway patrol
Hallway Patrol
  • Students are assigned to help keep hallways under control.
  • Teachers choose four responsible students per recess during their assigned week to monitor hallways.
  • Hallway Patrol students are stationed in different areas of the hall to keep students following hallway procedures.
  • Hallway Patrol gives a warning to those who are breaking the rules. If the behavior continues, a Hall Patrol Ticket is issued and given to the students’ teacher.
lunchroom trophy
Lunchroom Trophy
  • Students follow lunchroom rules to try to earn the Star Trophy for their class.
  • A timer is set at each lunch table, and students are not allowed to leave before the timer goes off. Students must raise their hand to be excused once the timer does go off.
  • The grade level class that had the best behavior receives the Star Trophy for the next day.
  • The class with the Star Trophy does not have to wait for the timer. They can leave once excused.

Teachers also commented on the Hallway Patrol intervention:

“The students have loved doing hall duty. It helps give them a sense of belonging to the school community. It also gives them a sense of pride because they can be trusted.”

  • Our data shows improvement in student behavior.
  • There is higher morale, a sense of teamwork, and increased student self-confidence.
  • These changes are the direct effect of our school-wide rules/procedures & various positive reinforcement systems.
  • Not to mention our dedicated & hard working students, staff, faculty, and community members!
  • We are all proud to call ourselves Stellar Stars.
