Healthy School Policy
BSCSD Wellness Policy
Please remember to follow our Healthy School Policy when allowing food to be distributed in your classrooms.
- All items should be store bought and packaged with ingredient labels.
- If your room is peanut-free, make sure parents who are supplying goodies are reminded of that.
- No soda, candy, cookies, cupcakes, or cakes
- Food that is brought in by an individual student for his/her own consumption (and not shared) may be what the parent chooses to send in. We do however discourage soda consumption in school.
Some healthy food ideas:
Drinks: sugar-free juice or fruit punch, cider, water
- fresh fruits or vegetables
- cut up vegetables with low-fat dip
- cut up fruit with low fat dip or cool whip
- cheese and crackers
- cheese sticks
- dried fruit
- tortilla chips with salsa
- sugar-free jello or pudding
Clip It! Behavior Chart
Our Classroom will use a clip chart to monitor behavior. A clip chart is a great tool that allows students to be rewarded for positive behavior, while discouraging negative behavior.
Each student has a clothespin, or clip, with a number on it. Everyone will start on “Ready to learn” each day. Throughout the day, students will be asked to move their clothespin up or down on the chart according to their behavior. If a student makes improved choices after moving their clip down, they will be given a chance to move their clip back up.
At the end of the day, children will fill in their behavior calendars, which will be kept in their Go Home Folders, with the color their clothespin was on at the end of the day. Students on blue, purple and pink will be rewarded with Scottie Bucks that they are able to redeem on redemption days for prizes and privileges. Scottie Bucks will also be given out throughout the day when a student is “caught being good”. This goes along with our PBIS system here at Wood Road.
Pink “Super Student”- This level is reserved for extraordinary behavior, and will not be given out loosely. We want this to remain special, so please don’t expect your student to reach this level daily.
Purple “Great Job”- Students on purple continue to make excellent choices and have outstanding behavior.
Blue ‘Good Choices”- Students move their clip to blue for making good choices, trying their best, and showing good character. This is a good level to end the day on!
Green “Ready to Learn”- This is an acceptable level to stay at. If students end the day on this level they did not get in trouble, it just means they didn’t go “above and beyond”.
Yellow “Slow Down”- Students move to this level as a reminder that they need to follow the classroom rules.
Orange “Think About It” Students move to orange if they continue to have a hard time making good choices. The teacher will choose a consequence such as taking a time out, loss of privilege, phone call home, whatever is logical for the misbehavior and meaningful to the student.
Red “Parent Contact” Students who move their clothespins to red have continued to struggle with their behavior. These students will receive an office referral, have their parents contacted, and also have a consequence.
We look forward to a great year. Thank you in advance for all your help this year!
