and Management Positive reinforcement is our approach to promote respectful behavior inside and outside the classroom. Individual Behavior Charts Each student will receive a daily self-assessment sheet at the beginning of the week, called their Jacobson Jets Chart. Their behavior will be recorded on this sheet and go home each night and must be brought back the next day with parents initials! Help make the connection between school and home and talk about your childs behavior that particular day with them.
