PBIS Incentive Day & Reading Challenge

We have confirmed the dates for the Web house per grade level during the week of April 25th-April 29th. (See below)


I'm hoping to order pizza for each grade level. They will get a free pop that day and snack bar will be open for students to purchase additional snacks. Students not waiting pizza can bring their own lunch.


Web House Days

Tuesday April 26th: 4th grade

Thursday April 28th: 5th Grade

Friday: April 29th: 6th grade


*We will walk students to MS and load buses there. Students needing to come back to GJ will get on Jeanise's bus at MS.



  • Have conversations as a team what you want to set for the key card goal for your class. This is an eight week period of time I am hoping to set the number of private dining and recess tickets limit at 4 (you earn your 4th and you are out)


  • We are working on the reading challenge and will launch this prior to Spring Break so students can be reading over spring break. Details were discussed and organized this morning. We will get information out to you soon! Hoping to role out on Friday March 18th prior to break.


  • New key card totals and tickets start on Tuesday March 1st!
