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
- Obey a request to stop a negative behavior
- Do not tease, threaten, or make fun of others
- Allow others to have their privacy
- Get permission before using another person's property
- Do not damage or vandalize public property
- Do not persuade others to break rules
- Avoid acting obnoxiously in public
- Dress appropriately in public
Our school works on different skills weekly; students can practice this every day!
