Brain Frames

Brain Frames developed by Dr. Bonnie Singer

Brain Frames are a set of six graphical patterns that students draw to organize their language and ideas. They are visual-spatial displays of the patterns underlying basic things we do with language every day: tell what we know, sequence ideas, make comparisons, show contrasts, identify causes, recognize effects, categorize, and show relationships between concepts. Literally, Brain Frames allow teachers and students to show what's in their brains by constructing a visual "frame" so they can see, reflect on, and share what they know and understand. In the classroom, the six Brain Frames are used to make language visible; they support teaching, listening, speaking, reading, writing, note taking, thinking, and problem solving.

If students have thoughts, they can show them with Brain Frames by making thinking and learning visible.  If they can show their ideas, they can organize them, reflect on them, refine them, remember them, and communicate effectively with others.

Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Behavior

Hamilton-Parsons Elementary staff created behavioral expectations in efforts to support all students.  This school-wide discipline approach provides emphasis on the system within the school to include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment.  Instead of a piecemeal approach, a continuum of support within the school is implemented to ensure safety and learning in all areas and non-classroom settings (hallways, buses, cafeteria, playground etc).  The intentions are to enhance the capacity of all students in leading their own lives and actions.  This research-validated practice promotes increased frequencies for desired behaviors so that Hamilton-Parsons continues to create a safe, productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.  
Teachers will do the following:

  • Teach and refer to our school-wide expectations frequently and as needed.
  • Provide students with more praise than correction.
  • Talk to students with respect using positive voice tone. 
  • Actively engage everyone in the class during instruction.
  • Use pre-correcting, prompting, and redirecting as we teach. 
  • Look for the positive first and provide positive, immediate, frequent, and explicit feedback.
  • Communicate with families to support the child and build the parent-school connection.

Ways you can support your child at home:

  • Refer to our school-wide expectations so that you and your child are aware.
  • Provide your child with more praise than correction.
  • Talk to students with respect using positive voice tone. 
  • Recognize that mistakes are learning opportunities and helps shape your child's adult future.
  • Look for the positive first and provide positive, immediate, frequent, and explicit feedback.
  • Connect and communicate with the school to support the home-school connection; should you have concerns, talk with your child's teacher or the school.    

Thank you for helping your BULLDOG reach their maximum potential!

Medical Forms

Student Medication Administration

Parents requesting that medication be administered to their child while they are in school are required to follow the procedures listed below.  These procedures apply to medications administered by school personnel as well as student self-administered medications.  Medication will be administered in accordance with the guidelines outlined in the Michigan School Code and the Romeo Community Schools Board Policy.

The following guidelines must be followed:

  1. A current medication request form MUST be on file for all students receiving medication.  A NEW form is required at the beginning of each school year.

  2. The medication request form is required for all medications including any over-the-counter drugs such as Tylenol or cough syrup/drops.  A separate form is required for EACH medication.
  3. If your child's medication changes or the dosage changes we MUST have a new form signed by the parent and filled out by the physician.  Medication changes will not be made with a note from a parent or physician.
  4. Medication must be sent to school in the CURRENT, pharmaceutically labeled and filled container and in the original container for over-the-counter medication.  
  5. Parents are responsible for splitting tablets to provide correct dosage of medication.
  6. Medication for school hours must be delivered and picked up from school by an adult.  At the end of the year, medication not picked up will be discarded.

By following the above guidelines, we ensure that medication is administered in a safe and careful manner.
