Did you know that KES students follow the three core values of being caring, respectful, and responsible? These core values are posted throughout the school and in our classrooms. The core value charts show students how they can exhibit these values in and out of the classroom. Room 31 students have even signed a contract to show that they will be caring, respectful, and responsible. Students throughout the school can earn core value tickets when they are showing that they are following one of these core values. Second grade has moved towards having Core Value Cards as one way of positive reinforcement in the classroom. Students can earn a hole punch everytime they are caught being caring, respectful, or responsible. Once a student earns 20 hole punches, they can earn a reward such as bringing in a stuffed animal from home, sitting at the teachers desk, extra computer time, etc.
