Discipline

At PS 150Q, we believe in a reflective approach and acknowledging positive behaviors.  Our motto is Respect-Reflect-Revise.  Our Positive Behavior System (PBIS) has a Respect Matrix that outlines the expected behaviors. 

Students can receive ClassDojo points and rewards - individual and whole class.  We currently have a social emotional curriculum, Stamford Harmony, which has monthly themes.    Our counselors have monthly assemblies that are aligned to PBIS and the Harmony Social Emotional Learning themes. Our focus is always to teach our students to be respectful, reflect , and learn from their actions.  We want to teach them life skills that will allow them to become productive and respectful citizens.
