BE RESPECTFUL...BE RESPONSIBLE...BE SAFE:

What is PBIS?
PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports) is a program that is geared toward having students learn the behavioral expectations of the school and help support a more positive environment for learning. When there are minimal behavior problems the learning environment is better for ALL students. Our Ben Franklin centers our expectations on the three Keys. Our school saying is “Be Responsible, Respectful and Safe”.

How does BF teach and reinforce PBIS expectations?
BF did a number of activities to kick off the school year for learning and reviewing about PBIS! An assembly welcomes the kids to a new year and teaches/reviews our PBIS expectations. Students receive Key and “Ben” stickers when ‘caught’ exhibiting these positive behaviors. Stickers are collected on classroom charts. For every 200 stickers the class earns a reward that is decided on by the teacher and students! Based on data, we set school wide goals for improvement where we see the need. When these goals are met, students are rewarded with whole school celebrations.
Some of our previous celebrations include…
