March 22, 2013    Dear Families,    The staff of Prairieview School believes that schools can only be successful when they help  children grow academically, socially and emotionally. In order for this to happen, it is important  that we establish a safe environment that allows students to grow. It is our goal to create an  atmosphere for learning by setting clear expectations and directly teaching students about our  expectations. We strive to have an atmosphere in our building that encourages positive behaviors  and interactions.    Our plan is based on Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS). The foundations of the  approach emphasizes teaching students the behaviors we expect to see, reminding them to use  those behaviors, acknowledging them when they do, and correcting them when they do not. We  have a PBIS team which meets monthly to look at our behavior data and, when necessary, adjust  our system so that it best meets the needs of our students. Our system has many components that  you may already be familiar with:     PALS‐ each month students learn about a different life skill and are encouraged to  exhibit the behavior. PALS are given when a staff member in the building sees a  student exhibiting the behavior. Every Friday, two students from each classroom are  chosen to receive a PALS charm.   Lifelong Guidelines‐ pledge that teaches students the expectations of all Prairieview  citizens.   Procedure Banners‐ these are posted around the building to remind students of  appropriate behaviors.    PALing Around‐ as a celebration of following behavior expectations, the students  participate in a structured free time.    School Celebrations‐ times when we celebrate as a whole school for being positive  citizens of our Prairieview community. Donated prizes are raffled off.   Cool Tools‐ lessons we use to teach and model expectations    Attached you will find a Cool Tool that you can use at home as a family. This is another way to  build a connection between home and school. More Cool Tools will be sent home through the  school newsletter periodically throughout the year. We hope you find them to be helpful!      Sincerely,     Prairieview PBIS Committee        Community Consolidated School District 46  http://www.d46.org

Home Cool Tool: Effort and Pride The character traits for March are Effort and Pride. In March, third and fourth grade participated in the statewide ISAT test and demonstrated great effort and pride on their hard work! Use some of the ideas below to introduce the concepts to your child, and help them practice what it means to show effort and pride. Discuss the concepts of Effort and Pride with your child. “Today we are going to talk about what it means to use our personal best and be proud of our work.” 1. Share with your child a time that something was difficult for you and what you did to overcome the difficulty. Encourage them to share something that was difficult for them that they had to work at to accomplish. 2. Discuss with your child what they perceive their strengths to be. Also, share with your child what you feel your strengths are.

Brainstorm positive Effort and Pride characteristics. How do you show your best effort: 1. Don’t give up when things are hard 2. Try different ways to solve problems

How do you show you’re proud of yourself: 1. Say “Thank-You” when someone gives you a compliment 2. Take time to celebrate your achievements

Activities to practice and promote Effort and Pride: 1. Create a “compliment board” at home. Every time your child gives a compliment to someone or receives a compliment, add a sticker to the compliment board. 2. Display student-work at home and celebrate each other’s achievements. 3. Choose three household chores that everyone agrees on and promises to put more effort into at home.
