Positive Behavior Program
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a systematic approach to ensuring that all students receive the behavioral and social emotional support to succeed in school. PBIS is a school-wide system to improve climate and culture by creating continuity among students and encouraging a proactive approach to discipline. Students are taught our expectations of being respectful, responsible and ready and understand what that looks like in different areas around the school such as the hallways, classrooms, playground and cafeteria.
Staff recognize students for following expectations by distributing cougar bucks that students can use at our school store. We also have monthly raffle incentives, dress down days, and terrific kid/student of the week assemblies as well as quarterly incentives like class or pizza parties!
We believe this program helps ensure an effective learning environment. Our teachers and staff are trained to implement the program. As a result, we have consistent implementation and integration throughout our school. We encourage you to join us as we focus on the positive behaviors and strengths of our students.
