PBIS Rewards

PBIS Rewards is a system used at HMS that allows students to earn points each day for exhibiting great behavior. Students can use those points to make purchases in our school store. PBIS Rewards is also the system we use for student discipline referrals.


Information to login and see your child's points and referrals was sent home yesterday with report cards. If you have any questions about getting connected, please let us know.
