Student Discipline & Suspension

Background

Menno Simons Christian School expects students to conduct themselves in a manner which demonstrates good citizenship and which encourages appropriate citizenship in others in both the classroom and school settings so that effective learning is made possible. Student discipline is not judgmental, arbitrary, confusing or coercive. Rather, it shows individuals what they have done wrong; it gives them ownership for the problem; it provides a process for solving the issue they have created; and it leaves their dignity intact. The goal should be to instruct, teach, guide and help children develop self-discipline so that learning can be maximized for all students.
