I hope everyone is well. Before we got sidetracked with the canceling of school, we had received some great news that our school would be recognized by the state as a School Implementing Tier 1 PBIS with fidelity. Our school wide positive behavior system helps to create a warm and nurturing environment for all of our students here at school. We have really focused on family involvement this year with our PBIS Team. This got me thinking.
PBIS may be helpful for you as your children are home during this time. You can remind them of our Bobcat Pledge and that they should be Ready, Respectful, and Responsible at home just as they are here. I am attaching a PBIS Home Chart below that you can use to create your own ready, respectful, and responsible expectations for the days at home. I am also providing a link where you can give your children there own Bobcat Brags virtually. I will be able to see which of our students are earning brags on a daily basis and provide some positive feedback to everyone for being great Bobcats at home.

Finally, I have created my own YouTube Channel for the school. I will be providing some read-alouds and other videos you can share with your children while they are away. Subscribe to Mr. Reid's YouTube Channel. This will also ask you if you want to be notified when new content is available. I will be posting things throughout our time away should you choose to share the videos with your children. My first video is me sharing a childhood favorite about responsibility. I hope you enjoy it!
I hope you all are staying safe and healthy and as always, if there is anything you need please reach out.
