Positive Behavior Support
We reward good behavior and students who follow the four Bs with a Cardi Card. Cardi Cards can be given out by a teacher, paraprofessional, bus driver, playground supervisor, or any other staff member. Students place the Cardi Card in their classroom jar. Cards are drawn randomly throughout the week to receive rewards. The more cards in the jar, the higher the chance of winning a reward.
Cardi Card Jar
At the end of the week the principal asks each teacher to select a name from the classroom jar.
The selected students go to the office to help the principal with the pledge, be acknowledged on the loudspeaker, and choose a small token of appreciation from the prize box.
