WMS PBIS Information
Explanation: PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support) is a
broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for all students aimed at
achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem
behavior. PBIS’s key attributes include pro-activity, data-based decision
making, and problem-solving orientation.
PBIS PLEDGE: We are respectful, we are responsible, we are resourceful, and we are Warriors!
Watkins Middle School
has 12 Building Character Traits/Expectations that we teach students and expect
them to display throughout the school year.
12 Building Character
On A Roll
Each month staff are asked to provide the name
of a student who has been “On A Roll.” These students will have their
picture taken and will be recognized on the Warrior of the Month sign in the
main lobby of the building. Administration will also choose three staff
members who have been “On A Roll” that month.
Student of the Quarter
Each grade level will be asked to provide the
name of a male and female student who have stood out during the current
quarter. Those students will be given a special certificate at a district
Student of the Quarter presentation prior to the board meeting.
Positive Behavior Tickets
Students who are displaying expected Warrior
behavior will be given a ticket at teacher discretion. Students will
place these tickets in a bucket located in the main office. Drawings will be made weekly for students to
win a small prize. Tickets can be distributed in the classroom, hallways,
cafeterias, during assemblies, etc.
Ultimate Warrior Award
Ultimate Warrior Award certificates will be
given by staff members to students who go above and beyond in the area of
effort, citizenship, and behavior. Teachers will turn in these
certificates to a designated location in the office. On the last day of each month certificates
will be pulled at random and rewards will be provided.
Homeroom (1st period) Attendance Rewards
Each month homerooms who achieve a 94%
attendance rate will receive an award to be posted on the classroom door.
Each homeroom per grade level with the highest attendance rate will receive an
Effort and Citizenship:
In addition to quarterly report cards, WMS also
records an effort and a citizenship score for each student. While letter
grades indicate student achievement, we feel it is also important to evaluate
students on characteristics that do not necessarily show up in
Those scores are averaged and quarterly rewards
are provided by PBIS based on the student’s score. A student must obtain
at least a 1.9 to earn a reward.
