What's New In PBIS - September/October Issue
So What is PBIS??
PBIS is a school-wide system that provides clear expectations for behaviors, and consistent consequences for inappropriate behaviors, across all classrooms and across all school settings. Posters in classrooms, bathrooms, hallways and the cafeteria describe what it means to be respectful, responsible and safe here at BMS. Students are rewarded for displaying positive behaviors throughout the school day. By rewarding positive behaviors and by explicitly teaching our students to engage in these behaviors, we will foster a positive and safe learning environment. We are excited to have such a dedicated and positive staff, who are excellent role models throughout the school year.

We have 3 pillars of behavior that are expected of every child, in every setting.
Beckwith students are respectful. We are cooperative, acknowledge personal space, and treat others the way we would like to be treated. We respect our teachers and staff by listening and following directions. We respect our school by keeping hallways, classrooms and restrooms clean.
Beckwith student are responsible. We are active participants in our classrooms. We come to class on time and are always prepared to learn. We navigate the hallways in a responsible manner, and plan accordingly for locker and restroom breaks.
Beckwith students are safe. We are quiet when teachers and staff require our attention. We traverse the school in a safe manner. We use school materials appropriately, and we look out for the safety of our fellow classmates.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
If you’d like to help out, there are a number of ways to do so. Students are earning tickets for good behavior, which they can redeem for rewards. We would greatly appreciate reward donations or suggestions for rewards. We also need help with copying materials, and chaperoning events. Please contact Ms. Evans for more information.
You will need a current CORI/SORI if you would like to volunteer at the school. You can get this done by speaking with one of our secretaries in the office. Please bring a photo ID with you.
