Students have homework assigned nightly. Each child writes his or her homework in a homework planner daily. The planner must be signed by a parent each night. Children are paid tickets for the planner each day for communication between school and home.
Classroom Behavior is monitored using a ticket system. The children are paid tickets for completing homework, on task behavior, etc. Tickets go to bank. The children are also fined tickets for missing homework, off task behavior, etc. On Fridays (about twice a month), we have auction/activity purchase in which the children can buy items/activities with their tickets.
Red - one
Blue - five
White - ten
Many parents donate gently used or new items to the auction. Donated items may be sent to school with a note from the parent giving teachers permission to sell the donated item(s) at auction.
