PBIS Newsletter

PBIS is off to a great start this year. Everyone did a wonderful job of teaching the matrix. Students understand the core values and expectations here at Discovery. I just want to thank everyone for being flexible and response in regards to PBIS.

During the month of October our focus will be Bully Awareness Month. We will begin our “Cool Tool” Tuesday’s this month. Every week there will be a focus with a lesson to teach. We will be kicking off Bully Awareness month on Oct. 5 by wearing blue. We want students and staff to wear blue. Jessica will be integrating this into morning announcements. Please expect a packet of the lesson with activities in your mailbox on Monday September 28th. This packet will outline the month of October and include the lessons, templates, and links you need to go to in order to teach lessons. I will do my best to upload what I can on docs as well.

After feedback from the PBIS Team we have decided on the following:

· Classroom matrixes are due to Kim Johnson by September 30. She will house them for our building and refer to them when talking to students in your class.

· When going to the restroom with your class, if another class is there please allow that class to finish before sending your students in.

· It has been noted that some students might have a snack in their hand on the way to the bus. Please ensure that the student places their snack in their book bag before leaving the classroom. They should not be walking onto the bus with a snack in hand.

· Bus Bucks should be placed in your house bin and be a part of the raffle.

Things to do or note:

· All licensed staff will receive one You Count! Pad a month – As a PBIS team we will be discussing in the future if we would want more.

· All Para’s will receive half a You Count Pad a month – We will also discuss if they need more as a PBIS team.

· If you have items for the photo booth we would like to launch please drop items off in my office.

· We will begin PBIS raffle on September 28th.

· I am requesting you fill out students who you would like to participate in the assembly and post assembly activity on Google Docs. Please refer to a PBIS member for more information.

· You will be receiving a laminated matrix, voice levels, and 5-point scale for your room in the next week.

· October PBIS “Cool Tool” Packet will be in your mailbox Monday September 28. Please follow schedule and begin to prep students about bullying activities. Jessica will include in announcements.
