PBIS Rewards Parent App
PBIS Rewards Parent App
West Jackson Elementary School is utilizing the PBIS Rewards online platform for the 2019-20 school year. Please watch the video below to learn more about the PBIS Rewards system and how parents can connect and monitor their student's progress. If you have any questions regarding PBIS Rewards, please contact WJES Counselors Isa Martinez @firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary Kayla Brooks at email@example.com. Our students are excited about earning Panther Points to spend on the PBIS cart or to attend quarterly reward experiences. Thank you for partnering with us to support our kids!
Our Mindset for this month is 100% Accountable. 100% Accountable teaches us the importance of being responsible for our own happiness and success. 100% Accountable teaches us that we are not a victim of our past, that our future is not predetermined, and that our lives are what we choose them to be from this moment and each moment moving forward. In this mindset, we help students focus on recognizing fears and excuses. This mindset allows us to break down barriers and take responsibility for our thoughts and actions. It also allows us to free our mind and focus our energy to take the critical steps towards our goals.
Below is the link for the parent newsletter for the current Mindset - 100% Accountable. At the bottom of the second page are cool activities that you can do with your children.
If you have any questions about the PBIS Reward App or the 7 Mindset Curriculum, please reach out to the counseling department.
