PBiS at Hillside and the Skill of the Week

PBiS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. This is our school wide (and district wide) method for supporting student positive behavior and success at school. Each week, we introduce or review a behavior skill for that week. This helps students to continue to grow their behavior skills each week.

The Skill of the Week, 10/10-10/14/22 is:

Accepting Feedback

When you get the teacher's attention, you:

  • Look at the person
  • Say, "Okay"
  • Stay calm

We will be working on the above skill all week!
