Dear Gladstone Students and Families,

I greatly encourage all parents to participate in all of our school activities: Back to School Night, Open House, parent meetings, conferences, be a volunteer and be an active and engaged member of the various Parent School Advisory Committees: School Site Council (SSC); English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC); and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
PBIS Teaches Positive Behavior to Eagles
PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) is a proactive positive behavior program used to create and maintain a safe and effective learning environment in school and beyond. Students are taught and revisit expected behaviors throughout the year. Students learn about expectations in the classroom, cafeteria, computer lab, library, office, restrooms, halls, playground, and at dismissal and pick-up.
At Gladstone St. a clip up/clip down behavior management system is used. Every student begins the day on green - Ready to Learn. Students can clip up to blue - Good Choices; purple - Great Job; and pink - Super Student. Clip down to yellow - Think About It; orange - Teacher's Choice; and red - Parent Contact. Throughout the day, clips can move up and down allowing students that clipped down for inappropriate behaviors to clip back up!
When students display good behavior, Eagle Bucks can be earned and then redeemed at the principal's store. When a student is "caught" with good behavior an Eagle Buck may be presented along with an explanation of "why" the Eagle Buck was earned. Students are learning that good and positive behavior has its rewards. Making positive choices is a life-long skill.
Eagle expectations are:
1. Be Safe
2. Be respectful
3. Be responsible
