February Focus: Build Capacity in Problem Solving Skills
¨ Discuss with your child how to resolve conflicts without using violence or putting others down.
PBIS DATA REPORT through the month of December:
¨ 2015-’16 – 66 referrals
¨ 2016-’17 – 41 referrals
¨ 2017-’18 – 40 referrals
¨ 2015-’16 – 152 referrals
¨ 2016-’17 – 141 referrals
¨ 2017-’18 – 112 referrals
We have decreased our referrals each year. Very exciting! I would like you to be aware that the most consistent misbehavior in our school is disrespect towards adults and students. Together, we will continue to teach the appropriate ways to interact with peers and all adults in the community to help sustain our safe school.
