PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports. Students receive Fisher Feathers for positive behavior. These Feathers can be turned in for rewards. We need volunteers to help during student lunches by collecting feathers and managing the reward card. Each reward is worth a certain amount of Feathers, which is marked on the cart.

On your signup day: Level II Volunteers will sign in at the front office and get their Yellow Badge before entering the building. Once inside, get the PBIS cart located in the office and go to the cafeteria. Students will come and visit the cart to get their rewards.
