The Daily Point Sheet

The Daily Point Sheet is a unique part of the school culture at City Springs. All teachers at City Springs use the CHAMPS system to communicate academic and behavioral expectations with students. The Daily Point Sheet is aligned with the CHAMPS system, and students are expected to be a “CHAMP” daily!

CHAMPS in the Elementary School

CHAMPS is an acronym that teachers use to communicate behavioral and academic expectations with students in the school building throughout the day. Here is a breakdown of each letter:

  • Conversation – Student used academic talk in conversation, allowed teacher to teach and all students to learn, spoke respectfully to staff and peers, spoke at an appropriate voice level, used correct grammar in conversations and responded to the “My Turn” signal.
  • Help – Student asked for help in an on-task way and helped promote an academic culture of learning.
  • Activity – Student engaged actively, completed work to the classroom expectation and finished work on time.
  • Movement – Student followed movement, position and transition expectations to maximize instructional time. (All transitions that take place during class time fall under this category, such as class changes and bathroom breaks.)
  • Participation – Student participated cooperatively and actively within group.
  • Success – Student earns a success stamp if the expectations in 4 out of 5 CHAMP categories are met.

Becoming a CHAMP for the Week

The Daily Point Sheet includes a maximum total of 100 points. The point sheet is broken down into two sections: Academic Points and Attitude Points. Academic subjects are worth 80 points total. Attitude points are worth 20 points total and encompass responsibility expectations, such as having a signed point sheet and completing homework each night. Attitude points also include assembly, hall and lunchroom behaviors. Your child is a “CHAMP” for the day if they score a 90% or higher on The Daily Point Sheet.

In order for students to participate in sports or attend field trips, they must be a CHAMP for that week. On Monday, if students receive a slip indicating that they were not “CHAMPS”, they will not be eligible for athletic practices or field trips occurring in the week from Tuesday thru Monday. Of course, every student will have the opportunity to become eligible for the next week by being a “CHAMP” in the current week for 4 out of 5 days.
