PBIS Update from your chair, Mrs. Champlin
*This week expect to see colleagues observing in classes and around the school. Please continue teaching as if we are not there. Our purpose is to observe our school environment and culture in order to make adjustments school-wide as needed.
*Please remember if you are K-2nd with Liveschool issues contact Ms. Philpot. 3rd-6th. issues go to Mrs. Champlin. When adding students we need first and last name (gender is also helpful).
*I hope to have school store schedule to you in the first week of October.
*Lastly, Ms. Gilliland should be contacting a member of your grade level team to work on gathering data of average points giving by grade levels per day/week.
Thanks for all you do at Penn!

Things to Remember
- We have a schedule for tidying up the lounge & the resource room. Make sure that your grade level participates on your week. Unfortunately, the messes build up quite quickly.
- Students MUST wear their "Free Dress" sticker for perfect attendance on their shirts. We want to avoid other students thinking that they can wear free dress anytime and begin to have problems with students being out of uniform.
- There are too many students in the restrooms for extended periods of time. Please use a system in your classroom to know how long your student has been in the restroom. We are beginning to see students horseplaying in the restrooms - Especially the boys. We are also seeing students run in the hallway when they are in the hallway unsupervised.
- Remember the volume in the cafeteria. Students should also remain seated with their legs in front of them and raise their hands for permission to leave their seats.
