Student Code of Conduct

        - to establish and maintain safe, caring, and respectful environments for purposeful learning.

We believe in the importance of recognizing our strengths and trying to improve on our weaknesses.

School Motto:

Learning For Today and The Future

        •       We show our respect at all times.
        •       We take care of school property and the environment

        •       We encourage others to do their best.
        •       We use our words or get help.

Safe / Being Safe

We define misbehaviour as an error in judgment (i.e. the student has made an inappropriate choice of behaviour). Misbehaviour then is behaviour that is:
•       unsafe
•       disrespectful
•       uncaring
Certain behaviours are totally unacceptable at Gibsons Elementary School and will result in immediate discipline, which may include an in-school or at-home suspension.
These behaviours are: fighting and violence against other students or staff members, bullying, harassment and intimidation, defiance, retribution against a person who has reported incidents, possession use or distribution of illegal or restricted substances, possession or use of weapons, theft or damage to property.

We believe that as our students become older, more mature, and move through successive grades, our expectations of them should rise. There should be increasing personal responsibility and self-discipline. There will also be increasing consequences for inappropriate behaviour.

Guiding Principles and Considerations:
The severity and frequency of unacceptable conduct as well as the age and maturity of students is considered in determining appropriate disciplinary action.
Disciplinary action, whenever possible, is preventive and restorative, rather than merely punitive
Students, as often as possible, are encouraged to participate in the development of meaningful consequences for violations of the established code of conduct.
