Challenger Behavior Beach Party Blow OUT!
What? Beach Party for every class IF we meet our goal of collecting 60,000 behavior tickets by May 19th.
- Increase and recognize positive behavior for the last nine weeks.
- Get ready for school wide PBIS next year
- Because it’s FUN!
How? All adults (kitchen, custodian, office, teachers, etc.) will be given a multitude of Beach Party tickets to give to individual students who are following school rules, following individual goals, doing ANY positive and helpful behavior. Classroom teachers may give their own students tickets as well. Once a ticket is given it may not be taken away. Each classroom will have a general collection bucket. The buckets will be collected and counted each Thursday by STU CRU rep, with results announced on Friday at GMC.
When? We started on March 28th and the big shindig is Tuesday, May 24th 12:30-1:30 pm on the front field and playground.
