4th Grade - Crisp



Fidget Toys:

There has been a proliferation of fidget toys (spinners, cubes). These fidgets are designed to occupy an unconscious part of the mind during instruction. When used for this purpose, fidgets are allowed. When being used for this purpose, no one, students or teachers, will be distracted by the fidget.

Unfortunately, with the proliferation of fidgets, there has also been an increase of students who think they have a toy that “can’t be taken away”. When spinners are used inappropriately, they can be taken away. This inappropriate use includes:

·         Use of fidgets in the hallways or recess.

·         Use of fidgets in an intentional way.

·         Any use of fidgets that distracts a student from learning, whether it is the student with the fidget, or a neighboring student.

When a fidget is used inappropriately, it may be taken away by any employee at Noah Webster Academy. The following individuals may take away fidgets.

·         Any Teacher

·         Any Aide

·         Any Lunch worker

·         Any janitor

·         Any administrator

·         Any instructor

If fidgets are taken, you may request them back from your homeroom teacher on the last day of school.
