McIntire Elementary School

Mission: High Levels of Learning for ALL!

SWPBS - Punch Cards

SWPBS includes universal management strategies designed to meet the needs of all students and develop a common language and focus for all school staff, students, families, and community members. Universal strategies are designed to be implemented consistently and efficiently across all school settings. This includes teaching specific behaviors or social skills that will lead to success in school, providing frequent positive reinforcement for expected behavior, consistently addressing social errors, and arranging teaching and learning environments to ensure success for all.


At McIntire, students earn a punch on their Hornet Punch Card when they are being safe, respectful, and responsible. These punches help teachers remember to give positive specific feedback to students which reinforce expected behaviors and helps students experience academic and social success. This quarter, when students fill their Punch Cards they choose an incentive experience. Incentives include a note home from their teacher, a special show and tell, and selfie with a teacher.
