Classroom Behavior Expectations

The New Brighton Way: Be Respectful, Safe, Kind, and Responsible

We expect all students to be respectful, safe, kind and responsible members of both the school community and our society as a whole.  Our goal is for students to recognize how to make wise behavior choices, to exercise self-discipline and to understand that their actions have impact on themselves and for others. 

 

Classroom Behavior Expectations

The classroom is the primary place of learning in a school.  In the classroom, students are expected to act respectfully, responsibly, with kindness and safely at all times. This means:

  • Speaking respectfully to peers and adults.

  • Raising your hand and waiting to be called on before speaking out in class.

  • Being respectful of others’ learning.

  • Getting permission from teachers or appropriate adults before leaving the classroom.

  • Students are expected to be responsible, productive, and on-task during class work time.

  • Backpacks need to be closed and stored at the beginning of class or stored in lockers.

 

Behavior in Outside Areas

In an effort to provide safety in all aspects of our school, we expect students to observe the following standards of behavior in outside areas:

  • Students are expected to treat each other with respect and to include peers who wish to join a game or conversation.

  • Students are expected to respect each other’s personal space and safety; physical contact may be in the form of handshakes, high-fives, or hand holding. ‘Rough-housing’ and play fighting is not acceptable.

  • Once a student arrives on campus, he/she is expected to stay at school for the day, unless checked out by a parent/guardian.

  • Students need to stay within school boundaries during school hours. NBMS is a closed campus.

  • Students are expected to walk on campus. Running is allowed on the field or basketball court.

  • A hall, bathroom, or Buddy class pass must be in a student’s possession if she/he is in the hallway outside of normal passing periods.

  • Students may eat in the PAC or the outside eating area (the quad) during lunch.  Students must be seated while eating. Eating in the hallways is not acceptable.

  • Students are expected to dispose of their trash and recycling in the appropriate receptacles.

  • Tech Decks and similar items may only be used in the PAC or the outside eating area.
