Recess Expected Behavior Chart

Recess Expected Behavior Chart (New!)

As a faculty we are working to identify expected behaviors for common locations here at Coolidge. (i.e., hallways, cafeteria, recess) As part of this work we have written a chart to share with students about what recess at Coolidge looks like and sounds like. We’ll be reviewing expected behaviors with students at school during morning meeting after vacation. If you’d like to review them with your child at home or check them out – click here!
