Chaffee Elementary School
Responsive Classroom has been woven into the fiber of who we are as a learning community. RC is about setting the expectation that all students take ownership for their behavior; treating one another and staff with kindness and respect. Each day begins with a morning meeting in which teachers model and guide students in greeting one another appropriately, sharing and listening with respect, and connecting with key academic skills through the daily morning message. These meetings build a culture of collaboration that is quite evident in every classroom here at Chaffee School.
Our monthly “Kid College” continues to address school-wide expectations for both academic and behavior with a strong emphasis on our monthly character traits, “filling each other’s bucket” and taking accountability for our words and actions. We have been discussing strong study habits and perseverance to task; even when faced with difficulty. We believe in our students and are determined to equip them to be successful!
I want to encourage all families to please have students in school on a consistent basis. When students miss school often, they are unable to make the needed gains and learning gaps quickly widen. Also, arriving consistently on time is another priority that we are looking closely at here at Chaffee School. We thank you in advance as we strive to provide your child with an education of excellence; wrapped in a nurturing and caring environment. Thank you for your support as we partner together for the sake of every student at Chaffee School.
