River Eves Elementary is a PBIS Distinguished School!
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (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- Eagle Cards for positive behaviors
Weekly- Weekly drawing of Eagle Cards for choice board prizes
Quarterly- Celebration parties for Eagle Card earners
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.
