As part of our PBIS work, we have implemented an acknowledgment system that allows us to recognize and reinforce positive behaviors in our students. This is done through the use of a token that we call "GRIT Coin." Staff members have these on hand and will write a recognition slip for students when they see them displaying Generosity, Responsibility, Integrity, or Teamwork throughout the building.
Q1 Goals & Rewards
For the first quarter, students worked toward the following goals:
300 GRIT Coin = Music in the Cafeteria
600 GRIT Coin = Music + Lunch on the Lawn
1000 GRIT Coin = Music + Lunch on the Lawn + Popsicles
We are proud to report that, during the first quarter, students received a total of 3,334 GRIT Coin! For our first nine weeks of implementation, this is outsanding!
On Friday, October 15th, all grade levels enjoyed a celebration with the rewards that they earned!
