AJK PBIS Update
We are very proud of our cadets who made rank all the way through and became knights and dames in the 2014-2015 school year. Students were awarded a dinner and show at the only place a Knight should eat… Medieval Times.
We have had a great start to our school year at A.J. Katzenmaier! One of our main priorities here is to create a positive learning environment. Our core values are represented in R.R.C.C.
- Respect for Self and Others
- Responsible for All Our Actions
- Commitment to Education
- Commitment to Our Community
Students enter into A.J.K. Academy as Cadets. Each quarter, the Cadets strive to become the next rank on the Road to Knighthood. Students can move up in rank by meeting academic, attendance, and behavioral goals. Special privileges are earned with each move up in rank.
After the end of the first quarter, in order to make rank and become a Squire, cadets must have maintained a 95% attendance rate, have no D’s or F’s on their report cards, and not received more than 3 behavioral referrals in our first 9 weeks. It is also mandatory to speak to adults and peers in a respectful manner and one of our ways for implementing this respect for self and others is by using Sir and Ma’am with adults and referring to our fellow classmates by their name.
Cadets are also able to earn “Schillings” for positive behavior. Schillings are our school’s token economy that can be used to buy prizes from our school store, the Medieval Market.
Class shields are earned by homeroom classes that display positive behavior. Incentives are earned with every ten shields that a class collects. The shields are posted outside the door of each classroom. To hear more about our school-wide incentive program, plan on attending our 1st AJK Parent Night on October 29th at 5:30.
