Behavior

ACCOUNTABILITY CONCEPTS


Taking responsibility for behavior and reaping the benefits of responsible behavior is the goal of Accountability Concepts.  Accountability Concepts is based on the six pillars of good character and is incorporated at school and at home in order to promote learning about and being able to act consistently on the following characteristics:  RESPONSIBILITY, SELF-CONTROL, SELFLESSNESS, WORK ETHIC, ATTITUDE,  and TRUST.

 


Each student will have a pyramid in the classroom.  The six characteristics are represented on the pyramid.  If a child demonstrates a lack of a trait, he/she loses a pyramid piece until it is corrected.  Students are to problem-solve and come up with solutions that would be acceptable in order to earn the missing piece back.  Each day, there will be opportunities for 5 Minutes of Fun for students who have all of their pieces in place.

The key to the success of Accountability Concepts is the connection to home and the support of parents.  We will be able to accomplish more working together to teach the children the skills for success than any of us can do alone.
