School Character Points
At Richland Elementary School, we envision a nurturing, positive, and safe learning community that promotes mutual respect among all stakeholders.
The Richland Elementary School community is committed to preparing all students to be productive citizens in our diverse and constantly changing society. Richland’s commitment includes cultivating a lifelong love of learning and the skills necessary for students to develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, technologically, and creatively.
The faculty and staff of Richland Elementary School believe that it is our responsibility to provide the students with:
Procedures for entering school:
Students line up at the assigned entrance or enter for breakfast at 7:15 am. When the 7:20 am bell rings, students walk in a grade level line quietly to their classrooms. Teachers will monitor and warmly greet students as they enter the building and classrooms.
Closing of school:
Following the afternoon announcements, the administrator will dismiss according to the following schedule: 4th-6th grade day care students and bus riders at 2:10 pm, KK-3rd grade day care and bus riders at 2:12 pm, all others at 2:15 pm with the bell. One teacher per patio will walk the day care students and bus riders to their destinations. One other teacher per patio will walk the car riders and walkers to their exit doors.
When changing classes students line up quietly in their homeroom and proceed silently to the designated classroom. All teachers will supervise from their doorway.
Teachers lead class to and from Encore classes in a single file line. Students wait with their teacher to enter the Encore class.
Students will take necessary supplies and walk quietly to their assigned classrooms arriving on time.
Teachers walk the students to the cafeteria “IN” doors (rear doors). The first 15 minutes of lunch is quiet time. During the last 15 minutes students may talk softly. At the end of the lunch period, teachers walk the students through the “OUT” doors (front doors) and back to their classrooms.
Students are escorted to the cafeteria by their teachers and are seated in their assigned sections. There is no talking in the cafeteria when entering, during the program, or exiting the cafeteria.
The teacher will complete the referral with the specific nature of the problem. Unless the problem is of a serious nature the student will not be sent to the office with the referral. The administrator will call for the student when ready.
Procedures for the following should be posted in every room:
Procedures- Each teacher will: give concrete definitions, provide reasons, demonstrate the procedure, present tasks step-by-step, explain and demonstrate cues (raising your hand, lights turned off…etc), allow for rehearsal/role play, give feed back,and re-teach when necessary.
Rules- Each teacher will: set the rationale, have students generate individual classroom rules, compile ideas and share with the class, have students and teacher group them, finalize the rules, and display them in the classroom. The teacher will engage the children in role playing and modeling to teach and reinforce the rules.
Students recite the school character pledge each morning. Second Step lessons are taught weekly. A character trait is emphasized each six weeks, and a “Terrific Kid” is selected by each teacher every six weeks. Students will be also sent to the office on a bi-weekly basis for a positive referral and parents will be contacted.
It is the goal of Richland Elementary to prepare students to be life long learners and contributing citizens in the 21st century. We believe that one of the most important lessons that education teaches is discipline. While discipline does not appear as a subject, it underlines the whole educational structure. Discipline is the training that develops self-control, character, and efficiency. It is the key to good conduct and proper consideration of others.
