Welcome to Our House "Where Character Matters"

PBIS and "Character Counts" Cards

Dear Botsford Families,

We are building our positive behavior intervention supports (PBIS) at Botsford by defining, teaching, monitoring and acknowledging what we expect from our students. We want to find students doing the "right thing". We celebrate students who are showing one or more of the 8 qualities of good character. Students are presented with a "Character Counts" card. The card is then displayed in our front hallway outside the principal's office. Two times a month the cards are removed from the board and six students are selected to be showcased at our bi-weekly celebrations. We look forward to our first student celebration scheduled for Friday, September 29th at 9:00 am.

EARLY DISMISSAL

If you need to have your student picked up early please do not ask us to have him or her waiting for you in the office. Students will not be called out of class until a parent is present to sign them out. Please plan ahead for appointments, as we would like to minimize missed class time.

Meet Kid President-he challenges all of us to be AWESOME!
