What is CHAMPS?
Hyde uses a district-wide behavior program called CHAMPS. We use this program to explain the expectations for each activity. Each letter in the word CHAMPS stands for a behavioral expectation. We make sure the following expectations are clear before the start of each activity. The goal of CHAMPS is to prevent disruptive behaviors from occurring by providing clear and consistent expectations.
C- Conversation - What should your voice level be at this time?
H- Help - Is it appropriate to ask for help now? Who do I ask? How do they ask?
A- Activity - What activity are we doing?
M- Movement - Can you get out of your seat? Get a drink? Use the restroom? Etc.
P- Participation - How do you participate? Should you raise your hand?
S- Success for All - When we all follow these expectations, we can be successful students.
CHAMPions in the Common Areas
CHAMPS tickets are given when a class is caught acting like "CHAMPS" in a common area. Our common areas are; the hallways, the restrooms, the lunchroom, recess, and dismissal. Any staff member can give a class a champs ticket.
Classroom teachers will collect the earned tickets. When a class collects 20 tickets then they will get a cloud. Ms. Clemens will display the clouds on the bulletin board across from the Nurse's office.
After three clouds, the class will earn an airplane. With each airplane the class will earn a 30 minute special activity.
If classes earn three airplanes in one semester they will be invited to a special school-wide celebration.
