Behavior Plan/ PBIS

Behavior Expectations and Consequences

Glen Arden participates in the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) Program.  There are four guiding PBIS principles:  being Respectful, Accountable, Mindful, and Safe. Positive behavior is a necessary part of the learning environment.  In our class, the main focus is on using the 7 Habits of Happy Kids to build a strong learning community.   We take a great deal of time at the beginning of the year to discuss what we want our classroom to look like and sound like.  As a class, we will create a mission statement for the year as well as classroom expectations that will allow our days to go smoothly.  

As part of our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) program, your child will be striving to earn stars with their classmates throughout the day, for following directions, participating, being respectful, and using the seven habits. If they are our “secret student” of the day and have been following all the expectations, they will receive a certificate for their Leadership Notebook and a reward ticket. Reward tickets will be given for outstanding behavior and can be used for rewards in the classroom. At the end of the day students will reflect on their day and mark their homework sheet for you to discuss at home. There will be a think sheet included if they struggled with behavior during the day. Students will receive a reminder card (stop sign) in class or a verbal reminder to change their behavior if needed. If they continue, they will complete a think sheet to reflect on their actions. This will be sent home for you to sign. If the negative behavior still continues there will be a  phone call home, referral sent to the office, or a consequence from administration.
