Being an Unusually Good Student
Niemes Elementary is hoping to see a lot of BUGS this year!
We have developed a positive reinforcement program that operates on the premise of catching kids Being Unusually Good Students (BUGS) and rewarding them with a paper bug. A BUG can be earned at any time, and winners will be recognized during a school assembly or podcast. Teachers are not allowed to reward their own students, thus, they must be safe, respectful, and responsible throughout the day.
We hope to create an environment where students, parents and staff practice the 3 B’s:
Be SAFE – Be RESPONSIBLE - Be. RESPECTFUL
Students are taught and reminded to make choices based on:
• the SAFETY of all students and adults
• treating all students and adults with RESPECT
• RESPONSIBLE behaviors
