PBIS at Slate Ridge - Rise Money and School Store

At Slate Ridge, we pride ourselves on our Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS). You have probably heard your child talking about earning "Rise Dollars". Rise Dollars are part of our token economy system where students earn "money" to spend at the Slate Ridge School Store. Rise Money is earned when students display Respect, Responsible, or Ready behavior. They can earn Rise Dollars anywhere in the school building, even on the bus! The Slate Ridge School Store has assigned shopping dates throughout the school year where your child can shop for items such as pencils, notebooks, hacky sacks, putty, slime, and other fun items!


One way to connect with your child's teacher, receive announcements from school, and be involved in your students school work is to connect with your child's teacher on Seesaw. Seesaw is a free app that can be used on iPhone, Android, or a computer. Look for invites to come home with a QR Code. If you don't receive one, please email or call your child's teacher.
