Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBiS) at Hillside
Recognizing appropriate behavior:
Students who are demonstrating appropriate behavior receive verbal praise, ("Thanks for doing that right away," "Nice job walking in the hallway") and, at times, a Tiger Ticket to turn in to a drawing for prizes or privileges. We are committed to letting students know we appreciate their hard work. A great majority of our students know our school rules (Be respectful, Be responsible, Be safe) and abide by them each and every day.
PBiS Skill of the Week
- Look at the person giving you the instruction
- Say, "Okay."
- Do what you've been asked to do right away
- Check back to see how you did
Our school works on different skills weekly; students can practice this every day!
