PBIS - Looking for Donations!
In Westside Community Schools, we use a framework called Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, or PBIS, to promote positive behaviors throughout our schools. At WMS, we have a "Warrior Buck Store", where students can trade in tickets for rewards. In efforts to "up the ante" and offer more than the usual candy and pop, we are excited to introduce raffle items! This is where you come in...
We are looking for donations of Westside gear, IPad pencil cases, water bottles, gift cards, or anything else that would suit a raffle for our middle school students. Cash or check donations are always awesome, too; we can purchase items we know students will love! Please drop any donations at the front office.
We will also be raffling the opportunities to win competitions with teachers or teams during pep rallies, and opportunities to win spirit days for the whole team! There's a lot of fun to be had at Westside Middle School celebrating amazing positive behaviors from amazing students!
