CHAMPs Expectations This year we are going to incorporate the CHAMPs Program into the daily guidelines of student expectations school-wide. CHAMPS is a proactive and positive approach to classroom management. It is designed help teachers manage student behavior and increase student motivation. It provides a very structured way to communicate classroom expectations and procedures. Each letter serves as a reminder to students of the type of behavior that should be seen in any given situation so that maximum learning as well as a safe and caring environment will be displayed.
Please review these basic CHAMPs expectations with your child as we move through the school year in order to ensure the greatest learning experience for your child.
C = Conversation (At what voice level should I be speaking?) H = Help (How do I signal that I need help during this activity?) A = Activity (What activity are we participating in at this time?) M = Movement (What movement is permitted during this activity?) P = Participation (How will others know I am participating in an appropriate manner during this activity?) S = Success (If students follow the CHAMPS expectations, they will be successful.)
In all areas of our school, all staff and students are expected to manage themselves according to our expectations. Students will be taught the expectations in each area of the school, including the classroom, hallway, cafeteria, playground, and bathroom.
Glendale has adopted the following 3 school-wide expectations:
Our hope is that families will talk with their student(s) about our school expectations: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful, and what these mean in each area of the school throughout the day. With your support and involvement, there is no question that Glendale Elementary will be a school where students excel!
