Student Behavior and Expectations – We believe every student is responsible for helping maintain a safe, orderly and educationally efficient learning environment. We ask that you discuss with your child the importance of having a good attitude, making good choices, and using good behavior while at school. Teaching behavioral expectations through our school-wide PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support) program and rewarding students for following the expectations is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding.
Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support is a proven, research and evidence-based program that emphasizes school wide systems of support that include strategies for defining, teaching, modeling and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. We promote our PBIS program through our School Wide Expectations, the STARRIFIC 5, which are derived from the nationally known FISH Philosophy.
Our Starrific 5 School Wide Expectations are:
1. Be There
2. Be Safe
3. Be Respectful
4. Be Positive
5. Make Good Choices
Marigny has intervention practices in place that provide various opportunities for changing inappropriate behaviors to appropriate behavior. These include classroom and school wide behavior management systems. Parents will be informed of reoccurring inappropriate behaviors in the classroom and other areas around school through our Minor Incident Report. We ask for your support to assist in helping your child find appropriate replacement behaviors. Students who are continuously having a difficult time making appropriate choices and using “STARRIFIC” behavior must attend “Think Tank”. This system is set up to be a positive learning experience. It is a time when students discuss and possibly write about their choices of behavior, other possible choices they could have made and how they can handle the situation next time. If a student has two visits within a quarter, a conference will be held with a classroom teacher, student and parent. If the student returns to Think Tank a third time in a quarter, a conference will be held with a teacher, student, parent and administrator. If problems re-occur, parents will need to come in and help resolve these problems.
Our main goal for making appropriate choices is to keep everyone at school safe while learning. We will not tolerate fighting, disrespect for others, bullying, obscene language or destruction of property.
Terrific Kids is sponsored by the Northshore Kiwanis. Terrific Kids is a program that we offer that recognizes students who are working hard at setting and accomplishing goals for themselves in the area of character development and good citizenship. Teachers select one student from their class each month as their “terrific kid”. The students are recognized at Morning Meeting and at a monthly breakfast for the students and their parents.
Marigny has partnered with Northshore Kiwanis to offer our first grade students a service learning experience here at school. Students may participate in service learning projects to help our school or other needy members of our community here in St. Tammany and at times, around the world. The K Kids sponsor service events around school each month.
