Behavior Expectations

Fifth grade students are expected to:

  • demonstrate best effort
  • be respectful
  • be safe
  • be kind
  • walk in a 4S line

Students that demonstrate these qualities may be recognized with NMES "HOWLER" tickets.  Tickets may be used to win prizes or special opportunities.  Students that follow these expectations are also rewarded weekly with an extra  recess on Monday morning.  

Students that do not meet these expectations will be asked to write their name in the classroom book and record which rule was broken and how.  If a student writes his or her name in the book 3 or more times in one week, that student will not earn extra recess on Friday.  Instead, that time will be spent writing a letter home about why he or she missed extra recess.
