Wrightsboro and PBIS
Positive Behavior Intervention Support is a school- wide approach for teaching appropriate behaviors in order to optimize academic achievement for each student. We use a systematic approach that establishes and reinforces clear behavioral expectations called Positive Behavior Intervention Support. Positive Behavioral Intervention Support encompasses a variety of methods that help students understand the behavioral expectations for different settings on our campus (i.e. classroom, hallway, sidewalk, bus, playground, and cafeteria). Overall, we are teaching and reinforcing our students to be respectful, safe, responsible and kind.
Our mascot is the lion and our school -wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support initiative is known as the Cool Cats program. Cool Cat stickers are awarded daily and students' names are announced on the intercom. These students' names are placed in a random drawing to have lunch with the principal. Additionally, students are recognized during assemblies scheduled throughout the year. Charms are awarded to students for their accomplishments in reading, math, and other academic areas. Other behaviors also reinforced with charms include acting as a responsible passenger on the school bus, achieving perfect attendance, displaying good citizenship behaviors, and accomplishing other goals set forth by the teachers. Parents are invited to attend the quarterly assemblies.
The North Carolina Positive Behavior Intervention Support Initiative has recognized Wrightsboro as an Exemplar School for the following years: 2008-2009, 2009-2010, 2010-2011, and 2014-2015.
