Safe and Civil Reminder – Jaguar Voice Levels: Students – Be a Principled and Caring Communicator and remember to always use the proper Jaguar Voice Levels. Voice level 0 means silence, no talking. Voice level 1 is a whisper. Voice level 2 is for conversations that only people at your table will hear. Voice level 3 is for answering a question, reading out loud, or making a presentation so that everyone in the class can hear you. Voice level 4 is a roar – it is your loudest voice and should only be used when you are outside. Thank you in advance for being Principled IB Communicators and for using the proper Jaguar Voice Levels. Be Respectful, be Responsible, be Safe, and be Jaguar Paws-itive.
Jaguar Paws: Earn your Jaguar Paws by demonstrating the skills, qualities and characteristics of IB Learners. On Fridays we raffle off prizes to lucky students who have earned and turned in their Jaguar Paws to the Main Office. Good luck to everyone!
