    CHOMPing at Sycamore Creek

    The CHOMP acronym is displayed in all hallways, classrooms, and frequently accessed exits to outside environments, such as the playground and bus loading zone.
    CHOMP is reinforced on the morning announcements when students recite the Sycamore Creek Crocodile Creed.
    Assemblies and administrative sit downs occur at the beginning, middle, and end of the year to teach and reinforce CHOMP expectations.
    In addition to teachers using lesson plans to cover CHOMP, at the beginning of the year classes are taught the expectations for each location by the special area teachers for all components of the matrix.

    What does CHOMPing mean from a student's point of view?

    Whole classes earn verbal CHOMPliments when they are caught ‘CHOMPing’ by a staff member. 

    Individual classrooms document their CHOMPliments on charts displayed outside each classroom.

    Classes proudly document their progress on the CHOMP Swamp board. Classes earn rewards for every 100 CHOMPliments they earn.
