Team Jaguars – 8th Grade


Jaguars are the largest of South America’s big cats. They once roamed from the southern tip of that continent north to the region surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today significant numbers of jaguars are found only in remote regions of South and Central America—particularly in the Amazon basin. Jaguars live alone and define territories of many square miles by marking with their waste or clawing trees. Unlike many other cats, jaguars do not avoid water; in fact, they are quite good swimmers. Rivers provide prey in the form of fish, turtles, or caimans—small, alligatorlike animals.

Team Planning:  8:00-9:30 a.m. M-F
Team Leader: Christel Early
Team Statement:  We strive to instill independent thinking and learning to assist our students to evolve into independent and productive members of society.
Team Quote: “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Team Dues: $10 per student is to be paid for team dues. This will offset the cost of team field trips and celebrations.
Student Badges: Students are required to purchase a badge for $5 and wear their badge daily for identity and safety purposes. Replacement badge costs $2.
Agenda Policy: Students will be given an agenda at the beginning of the year. It is important that your student brings this to every class. We use the agenda as a way of informing parents of the student’s daily activities, organizing dates, assignments, and major events, along with monitoring student behaviors and progress. Your child is expected to write in the agenda daily for all subjects. Your child will use the agenda as a hall pass. This is an important communication tool between teachers and parents. Replacement cost for a lost agenda is $5.
Discipline Policy: This discipline policy is followed in all classes on team. We may skip steps if the offense is severe. First offense: Warning from the teacher Second offense: Discipline form, phone call home, and silent lunch Third offense: Discipline form, phone call home to schedule parent/teacher conference, silent lunch, and team ISS Fourth offense: Discipline form, phone call home to schedule SST meeting, silent lunch for one week, team ISS for 3 days Fifth offense: Administrative referral
