Our school is now participating in the PBIS program. The term PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Supports. PBIS is a research based program that recognizes students for positive behaviors in school. In addition to recognizing students for positive behavior in the classroom, our program will also extend itself to the cafeteria, restroom, bus, playground, and hallways.
PBIS is a school-wide
initiative. All students, faculty, and
staff will now have uniform expectations for behavior. The great thing about
PBIS is that all school staff can recognize a student or classroom for positive
behavior. When recognized, a student and/or class will receive a Tiger
buck. The Tiger buck can be redeemed for
various incentives and in the Tiger Store on the last Friday of each month.
In addition to the start of the PBIS
program, we have also developed an acronym for the term P.A.W.S. Moving forward, we
will use the following behavior expectations school-wide. Students will be
expected to do their Personal
best, Act Responsibly, Work and play safe, and Show kindness. We have included a copy of the P.A.W.S behavior matrix which you can see by clicking here. Although the teachers have reviewed the matrix with students, you can assist the school by reviewing the matrix at home with your child(ren).
As always, thank you for your support. We are really excited about PBIS and the benefits for our students and school. If you have any questions about PBIS program, please call the school at 678-676-7402.
