Granby Elementary School institutes PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports). PBIS is a system wide approach to teaching and supervising positive behaviors and meeting the needs of all students in the school building. It focuses on building a school environment in which all students can learn and achieve their personal best. We will be teaching our students to act respectfully, be responsible, and to care about themselves and others. Children are reminded to demonstrate these behaviors each morning as we recite our Granby Character Pledge:
Today I am respectful, responsible, safe, and ready to learn.
I will cooperate to make Granby School a special place.
Another component of PBIS is to acknowledge positive behavior. Children will be rewarded with tickets for displaying school-wide expectations. Tickets can be used to redeem prizes at the school store .
Children are also taught to use appropriate voice levels throughout the building. They are as follows:
0 - no talking
1 - whisper voice
2 - regular speaking voice
3 - outside voice
School-wide celebrations will occur twice during the school year. The whole school will get together to celebrate being a Granby Gator and for demonstrating appropriate behavior. Those students who have received major referrals during the timeframe prior to the celebration will take part in a re-teaching/booster of the expectations.
