PBIS Update – 8 Keys of Excellence
During the month February, we have been focusing on the key, Integrity. The PBIS Team provides teachers with grade-level specific lessons that foster the following belief: match behavior with values. Demonstrate your positive personal values in all you do and say. Be sincere and real.
Living in integrity means that everything we say and everything we do are true reflections of what we value, what’s important to us. When we live in integrity we are sincere and true to ourselves—we don’t say or think one thing and do another. People trust and respect us, our relationships are solid, and we feel good about ourselves. Those positive feelings from others and within ourselves reinforce our values and build our reputation and self-esteem, leading us to greater success in all areas of our lives.
Home-School Connection: Take some time to brainstorm your family values. Discuss possible scenarios at school when your child may be presented with an opportunity to display those positive values.
