Trustworthiness Character Trait

Trustworthiness is our PAWS-itive character trait for the month of March! Monthly Character traits are defined and students displaying traits are presented with a PAW. Assigned students will collect them from classrooms each morning. PAWS will be announced during lunches on Wednesday. During lunch on Wednesday, students will have an opportunity to display their PAW on the Principal’s 100 Board. When there are 10 in a row on the board, those 10 students spin the prize wheel for individual incentives. Those individual incentives include VIP lunch with 2 friends, Cafeteria Snack Coupon, Pick a Prize Coupon, Gaming Room with 2 friends. At the end of each month, students will also receive the designated Character bead to acknowledge their PAWS-itive Traits.

What is our PBiS Goal This Year?

Our overall goal during the 2018-2019 school year is to have 80% or more of our kids receive one or fewer minor/major behavior referrals this school year. As of March 1, 2019, 418 out of our 489 students have received one or fewer behavior referrals for discipline. That means that 85% of our students at Maplewood Elementary are consistently doing the right thing! Out of the 71 students that have received more than one referral, only 48 have more than two. Our students are making great choices and learning quickly to avoid repeating bad ones.

WE💜PBiS! Service Project

During the month of February, Maplewood Elementary joined together in a service project to benefit the Crawford County Humane Society. A service project is meant to boost civic engagement in students and help them take initiative to strengthen the world around them. Thank you to all the parents and children for your participation and helping animals in need while they are waiting on a forever home! We raised over $200 and two FULL boxes of supplies from our generous donators!
