PAWS and PBIS
Belmont Elementary School uses the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. We will continue to use the acronym PAWS (People Always Working on Self-Control) because it is known and seen as a positive message throughout our school community.
The PAWS Incentive Program is a school-wide program that is designed to improve the overall academics and behavior of the school environment; therefore improving the success of all students.
The PAWS Incentive Program focuses on three target behaviors for success. We expect everyone at BES to be: Kind, Prepared, and Safe.
As a part of the program, when students demonstrate the target behaviors, they are to be rewarded with a choice between PAWS Tickets or PAWS Stickers Students turn in the tickets in order to have a chance to draw weekly prizes including school supplies, homework passes, additional charms, and cafeteria fast passes. In addition, a bulletin board displays the pictures of weekly winners.
Parents/Guardians, please encourage your child(ren) to engage in positive behaviors and aim for success.
