Welcome • 16 th year at Walker • Mother to Kaylie (9), Carmella (3), and Keaton (1) • Degrees – St. Xavier – Elementary Education – Governors State – Masters in Administration
Discipline Policy The Walker Way: BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, BE SAFE • Procedures/Rules are a part of life and are intended to make our classroom/school a respectful, responsible, and safe environment. • I have a ZERO tolerance policy for disrespectful behavior as well as bullying.
Discipline Policy • Students will be expected to follow all procedures outlined in the PBIS expectations matrix (posted in my classroom and included in parent information packet) as well as other procedures taught throughout the year. Should a student violate any of the above, a proper consequence determined by the teacher and or the Administration Team will be issued. • Consequences are as follows: verbal warning, loss of intermurals, detention(s), phone call(s) home, conference with teacher, change of seat, referral, and/or visit to the office. • Compliance with procedures/rules will result in following rewards: constructive learning, verbal praise, PBIS tickets, free time, participation in end of year activities, and/or participation in various activities throughout the year.
Positive Reinforcement • To encourage students to follow classroom procedures/rules, I will reinforce appropriate behavior with rewards. • Rewards can be whole group and/or individual. • Students can earn PAWS for our class and tickets individually. • Tickets can be redeemed at “Paw. Mart” during lunch on designated days. (Popcorn/Nacho Day every 3 rd Thursday of month – rotate)

Weapons Policy • A student who uses, possesses, controls, or transfers a weapon, or any other object that can reasonably be considered, or looks like, a weapon, shall be expelled for at least one calendar year, but no more than 2 calendar years. The Superintendent may modify the expulsion period and the Board may modify the Superintendent’s determination, on a case-by-case basis. A “weapon” means possession, use, control, or transfer of: (1) any gun, rifle, shotgun, a weapon as defined by Section 921 of Title 18, United States Code, firearm as defined in Section 1. 1 of the Firearm Owners Identification Act, or use of a weapon as defined in Section 24 -1 of the Criminal Code; (2) any other object if used or attempted to be used to cause bodily harm, including but not limited to, knives, brass knuckles, billy clubs; or (3) “lookalikes” of any weapon as defined above. Any item, such as a baseball bat, pipe, bottle, lock, stick, pencil, and pen, is considered to be a weapon if used or attempted to be used to cause bodily harm. The Superintendent or designee may grant an exception to this policy, upon the prior request of an adult supervisor, for students in theatre, cooking, ROTC, martial arts, and similar programs, whether or not school sponsored, provided the item is not equipped, nor intended, to do bodily harm.
Assignment Notebook • Tool for communication between classroom and home. • Daily assignments are posted in class as well as on my webpage. • Students should write EVERYTHING that I write on the class assignment notebook page. • I do not force students to bring home materials – each student must decide and make choices for themselves and be held accountable for their decisions. • All assignments are handed back throughout the week.
ABSENCES / TARDIES • ABSENCES • When a student is absent, it is the responsibility of the student to ask for his or her absent work. • Assignments missed due to illness will be given one day per day of absence plus one day. Requests for homework should be given to the school office before 11 AM and picked up at the school at the end of the school day. Summit Hill School District 161 appreciates parents taking an active role in the child’s education both at school and at home. • Students may take advantage of studyhall or academic assistance to complete work.
ABSENCES / TARDIES • Students are required to arrive to class on time. Students that are not in class by the time the bell rings will be subject to the following policy: • Per quarter, for each class: • • • 1 st tardy – verbal warning 2 nd, 3 rd and 4 th tardies will be recorded in Powerschool Once the student has 4 tardies for the same class, the student will receive a referral for a ‘major’ offense, and will be sent to the office. The student will receive a detention.
