Thanks to donations from businesses and groups, every student and staff member at Eagle View Elementary School has a Pride shirt for "Wear it Wednesdays."

The shirts are a result of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), a framework for creating and sustaining a safe and effective school by helping establish a regular, predictable, positive learning and teaching environment.  

PBIS at Eagle View has the following factors:

• Building-wide reward system providing positive feedback when students are doing the right thing (Patriot Pride tickets).

• Regular assemblies every six weeks or so to reinforce positive behaviors and to have ticket drawings. Prizes include fire truck rides, lunch with the principal, police car rides, sledding parties, etc.

• Visual displays throughout the building focusing on Patriot Pride: Respect, Responsibility and Safety.

• Weekly Star Students, where one child from every class is nominated for being respectful, responsible and safe. They get a certificate and picture with the principal.

• Teach and model behavior expectations. It is no longer assumed that every child knows appropriate school behaviors. By teaching expectations and constantly reinforcing them, staff can keep more students in the classroom to maximize learning and increase overall student success.

• Wear it Wednesdays where everyone wears a Pride shirt.

• School-wide rewards that promote teamwork.
