  • PBIS - Update- Plan for BB tickets to add to Smore: Please observe students in the hallways during dismissal and work with your grade level to select one student who is doing an outstanding job to receive a ticket to the Boiling Springs football game. This year, we will only distribute tickets for three games. Discuss with students that they can work for this ticket by making good choices in the hallways, in the gym, loading buses, and on the bus.
