It has been a very positive start to the school year! Students and staff are fully immersed in PBiS (Positive, Behavior, Interventions & Supports) and we are already having classroom celebrations and even a school-wide celebration!
Some questions you may have about PBiS:
What are these links we keep hearing about?
Beeman staff are noticing the positive things that happen here with great frequency, particularly when they are connected to our 3 school wide expectations. We are using the links so that we have something tangible to pass to students as we acknowledge their positive behavior. Students then take links and place them in their classroom jar.
What does a classroom celebration look like?
Each classroom will decide what they want to do once they have earned a classroom celebration by filling their jar. As you can see in this photo, the “Share” class earned a celebration and chose to have a day when they were allowed to bring their favorite stuffed animal into the classroom.
What will the school wide celebrations be like?
Beeman students earned their first school-wide celebration on Monday. The PBiS Leadership Team decides on the school-wide celebrations and we chose to surprise students with a celebration at B.E.S.T. (Beeman Elementary Sharing Time) this week. While Ms. Evarts was speaking, music began to play and our new mascot appeared to let kids know they had filled the school-wide jar. Instead of finishing B.E.S.T., students were able to go outside with the wildcat for a whole school recess. Great way to start the day!
