PBIS Newsletter from our Student PBIS Representatives

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. PBIS reminds the
students of the Morse R.O.A.R.S.

Okay to be different
A fun place to learn

The reason that we have the Morse R.O.A.R.S. is to remind students to be respectful,
responsible, and safe not just at school but in the community. In our school, we now
have the Morse R.O.A.R.S. coins that teachers give to students that are following the
Morse R.O.A.R.S.

At school we have been learning how to be helpful, respectful, and being mindful of
other people's space. We have been keeping track by using these brand new Morse
R.O.A.R.S. Coins. A student gets a Morse R.O.A.R.S. coin when they are following the
Morse R.O.A.R.S. or a personal goal set by a teacher. The student has to work on this
goal in order to get a coin at the end of the week or the day. Students work to track
their coins with the help of their teachers. As a school we are working towards a
common goal to earn school wide activities. At the end of each month, coins get tallied
to see if we have reached our goal. So far as a school we have earned Pajama Day,
Hat day, an afternoon movie day and we will soon be having a Winter Carnival .
Individually students can purchase an experience with another staff member in the
school. Some experiences include cooking with Mrs. Beth, making catnip toys with Mrs.
Johnston, board games with Mrs. Grass, puzzles with Mrs. Braley, learning about
robotics with Mrs. Kreider, DJ lunch, helping Maria in the office, a trip to the store for an
ice cream and many more. With these coins we have been seeing a big change in
behaviors we think that the Morse R.O.A.R.S. were a great addition to our schools.
