Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) Program (Character Education)
School personnel give PAWSitive Cougar coupons to students to encourage and reward positive decision making skills as well as for performing good deeds. PAWSitive coupons are collected daily and rewarded with a pencil of the child's choice. Weekly drawings are made every Friday from the PAWSitive coupons collected, one winner is drawn from the primary grades (k-2) and one winner from our intermediate grades (3-5). The weekly winners recieve a free snack coupon for lunch. In addition, at the monthly assembly students are recognized by class for PAWSitive behaviors demonstrated during the lunch period. A 'Silver Spoon Award' is provided to the class for the month and will recieve a special 'treat' for their PAWSitive behavior. During the monthly assembly, students also recognize birthday's of the month , participate in singing the school song, and celebrate a skit dedicated to a CHARACTER WORD of the MONTH.
