Hawk P.R.I.D.E. Cards—We will provide students with positive, immediate, and frequent reinforcement for these positive behaviors. When students are caught doing the right thing, Stonegate Staff will reward them with “P.R.I.D.E.” cards. Other student acknowledgement opportunities will include: P.R.I.D.E. card drawings in the classrooms, recognition at assemblies, classroom award distribution, and monthly drawings to visit the front office for prizes!

P. B.I.S. Basics and Research

Utilizing the “Systematic Change Model”, attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (schoolwide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results for all children. This makes problem behavior less effective and desired behavior more functional. It is research based and it works! Key Components
