PBIS for Parents - An Introduction

PBIS is here at Greene! PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. While your children may not be able to tell you that, they can certainly tell you about the “Four Be’s” at Greene School; Be Respectful! Be Responsible! Be Safe! and Be a Problem Solver!

These “Four Be’s” are recognized in every setting in the school day: classroom, hallway, restroom, cafeteria, playground and even on the bus! Every setting has a poster stating the expected behaviors in each setting. Your children are learning about each of these through videos, class discussion and role playing in the classrooms. Be sure to ask them about what they learned.

A big part of PBIS is that these expectations carry over into EVERY setting! No matter if your children are in school, on the bus, at the football game on Friday night or out in the community, those Aviator Expectations are the same. Each week in the Greene newsletter, we’ll be telling you a little more about PBIS, Aviator Expectations, how your children are acknowledged for expected behaviors and even how you can reinforce this at home. For now, be sure to ask about the lessons and find out if your child has received a “First Class Pass” yet! Stay tuned each week to learn more!

Schedule Changes

The last day to submit requests for music changes is Friday,September 1st. All change requests must be in writing (email or written note) from a parent. A form is also available for students to pick up from the counselors' office. Not all requests are possible as some of our sections are at capacity. No more schedule changes will be made until the end of the semester grading period.

Health Records

Welcome families that are NEW to Sycamore Community Schools. There is so much to do to get ready for start of school. Please take a moment to confirm that your students health records from previous schools as well as updated immunization records are on file. Mrs.Dobrowolski, the nurse at the Greene School, will be contacting you to assure this task is completed. The Revised Code of the State of Ohio (3313.671) states that a child must have the immunizations listed in the attached document. You can obtain a copy of their immunizations from their physician and fax it or email to the contacts listed below.Thank you for your cooperation.


Parent Guides to the Ohio Standards

As your calendar starts filling up with parent meetings for the new school year, these Parent Guides to Student Success are a handy resource to keep at your fingertips!

Co-developed by the National and Ohio PTAs with input from The Ohio Standard, each guide offers parents an example of the standards and the knowledge and skills children will gain at each grade level, as well as activities they can do with each student to reinforce learning at home.
