When you join the PTO, you become a general member for this school year. Your membership fee directly benefits all of our students and teachers by providing funds for everything from grounds beautification, to our student agendas, Teacher of the Year awards, seasonal decorations throughout the building, student recognition events, and in-class curriculum support.
We also have volunteer opportunities of all kinds. Getting involved through the PTO is a great way to connect to all that is happening at Cogburn Woods. We understand that everyone has commitments, and we want you to know that joining the PTO does NOT obligate you to volunteer.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school's sense of safety, and support improved academic outcomes. Thousands of U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline.
The premise of PBIS is that continual character education instruction, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety, and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention, using disciplinary data and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized interventions and supports to improve school climate for all students.
Incentives & Rewards:
Daily - PBIS points earned for positive behaviors
Weekly - Weekly classroom store to use PBIS points
Quarterly - Celebration parties for students with PBIS points
What can I do at home?
Parents are an important and integral part of the PBIS implementation. We encourage parents to use the same expectations and rules that the school teaches. The common language creates consistency and a unified support for expected student behavior. Together the home, school, and community share the responsibility for developing good citizens. Parents, teachers, and students collaborate to maintain a safe, learning environment.
Review and discuss with your child the common rules and behaviors and the River Eves Expectations Matrix.
Post them at home for easy reference and incorporate them into your family rules.
Ensure that your child is well rested and on time for each school day.
Ask your child about his/her school day.
Encourage your child to do his/her homework and keep up with his/her classes.
Stay in contact with your child's teacher(s).
Encourage your child to use appropriate and proper language and tone.
Practice caring and polite phrases, such as "Thank you", "Excuse me", "Please", and "I'm sorry."
Be a contributing member of your child's school. Volunteer, attend PTA events or other school activities.
