• Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success. 

    Our PBS Team has developed and are implementing a School-wide System for Rewarding students that presents positive behavior in all areas of their educational day. We will have a school-wide assembly at the beginning of the school year to review and model the rules and also to explain our positive behavior support program. Students will earn T Tickets for modeling positive behavior while at school. All adult members of our school community may give out the T Tickets (teachers, paraprofessionals, secretaries, custodians, cafeteria workers, etc.). The tickets will be used for the PBS Reward Store and also for other fun events throughout the school year. Big T’s will be presented to classes by the Principal, Assistant Principal, or Dean of students for classes that show exceptional behavior as an entire group. When a class earns a Big, they will be able to choose a class reward to celebrate their accomplishments.
    The School-Wide rules:

    Be Safe  

    Be Responsible
    Be Respectful 

    Be Friendly and Caring
