Expectations

At Clinton Elementary, we have a strong focus on modeling and re-teaching expected school behaviors. By doing so, we re-establish and maintain a school culture where students can expect to see prosocial behavior from their peers and from adults. Returning to school from breaks and unplanned absences can be a challenging transition for students. They may need an increase in teaching and re-teaching in order for students to remember and follow expectations. We acknowledge them when they show expected behavior which increases the likelihood that the positive behaviors will continue. Just like washing our hands during flu season, we want to be preventative. The more we teach expected behaviors and acknowledge students for meeting them, the more preventative we are.  Thank you for your support of our Clinton scholars!
