Tioga Students Are H.E.R.O.es
Tioga students are taught to strive to be a H.E.R.O. while at school and in the community. Tioga’s H.E.R.O. stands for ...
- Have Responsibility
- Extending Kindness
- Respecting Yourself, Your Classmates, and Your School
- Obeying Safety Rules.
All of our students are taught what it means to be a H.E.R.O. in the different parts of school and throughout the day, and how they can make positive choices in school.
Students are taught what behaviors we expect them to show during the school day, like walking quietly in the hallways, following directions from all adults in the building, keeping their hands to themselves, putting away their materials, appropriate bus behavior, and being respectful when other people are talking or working. We kick off the school year with a school-wide celebration and overview of these expectations so that all our students know what positive choices we want them to make. We review these basic behaviors for the hallway, classroom, and recess throughout the year when we see that the students need a reminder of how we want them to behave.
At the start of every month, the school or classroom makes a goal for their behavior and what expectation that they want to work on. The students are given mini-lessons on how to make those positive choices and how to be a H.E.R.O. in that situation. The students really enjoy doing the role plays of how to be a Tioga H.E.R.O.
Rewarding Students for Good Choices…
When Tioga Students show that they know how to be a H.E.R.O. and follow the positive expectations, they receive a H.E.R.O. ticket. Students can receive H.E.R.O. tickets at any time of day and from any teachers. Once they get a certain number of tickets, they can redeem them for different prizes like Lunch with the Teacher, a small toy/fidget, a keychain, or a chance to have their picture made into a Super Hero! When the school or classrooms meet their monthly goals, there are celebrations within the classroom or the school, like pajama day, a classroom dance party, extra recess, or popsicles.
