PBIS is a Success!

September 26, 2008

The PBIS school store is a success! Students are working hard to earn compliment cards to spend at the school store and our school environment is showing it. We are seeing more and more respectful behaviors every day!
Beginning in October, Dubois will begin to take steps toward implementing a program called "Check in/Check out". The program will be offered to students who seem to be having a difficult time adjusting to the school environment. Students will be nominated by their teachers and then paired with an adult in the building. This adult will check in with the student each morning and be their own personal cheerleader. At the end of the day, the adult will check out with the student to see how their day went and encourage them to have a good evening. The program takes no more than 5 minutes each day. Kids will not miss any instruction time and will have the chance to bond with an adult in the building. If your child is nominated, you will be notified and asked if you would like your child to participate in the program. We look forward to putting this program into place this month!
