Positive behavior interventions and support
Students can earn Cat Cash daily which they can then use to buy incentives such as a trip to our school game room. We have been a PBIS Gold School for five years in a row.
We ask teachers, students and parents to make certain commitments to each other regarding their participation in the life of Windsor Hills. They are:
Commitment to Quality: “We do our best by giving 100% at all times. We understand there is always room for improvement.”
Contribution: “We take every opportunity to serve the school and the community. We seek ways to help others in need.”
Gratitude: "We will actively acknowledge the good things around us. We recognize the impact positive reflection has on others in our community."
Honor and Integrity: “We do the right thing even when no one else is watching. All of our actions represent who we are.”
Perseverance: “ We never give up even when faced with difficult challenges. We strive to accomplish all of our goals.”
Second step & community meetings
All students experience a once a week lesson on social-emotional learning. During these lessons teachers implement a program called "Second Step."
Each lesson also incorporates a class or grade-level wide community meeting. In these meetings students and teachers are able to give acknowledgements, offer apologies, and make announcements. Each teacher will also give out a 5 Promise bracelet, acknowledging a student who displays each month's focus:
- September -- Commitment to Quality
- October -- Contribution
- November -- Honor & Integrity
- December -- Gratitude
- January -- Perseverance
- February -- Commitment to Quality
- March -- Contribution
- April -- Honor & Integrity
- May -- Gratitude
- June -- Perseverance
