We are a PBIS school. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Support. PBIS is a proactive approach schools use to improve school safety and promote positive behavior. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment.
Our school rules are:
- BE SAFE
- BE RESPECTFUL
- BE RESPONSIBLE
- BE KIND
PBIS includes pre-teaching expectations and noticing students who follow them.
Students who follow our school rules can be rewarded with a Paw Pat. Paw Pats are our way of saying, Good job on doing the right thing! Students can turn their Paw Pats in for a chance to win a classroom or schoolwide drawing. Paw Pat Schoolwide Drawing prizes include fun activities like Movie & Popcorn With A Friend, Helping Mr. Matt, and Extra Recess, or a chance to pick from the Prize Box.
PBIS also includes higher-level interventions for students who have trouble following our schoolwide rules. For example, we can offer structured breaks, opportunities to calm down or reduce sensory input as needed, and a Check In Check Out program. These interventions are designed to give students individualized support. Interventions are implemented in communication with parents and families. To learn more, please contact our Student Success Coordinator Mr. Callahan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
