Laurel Woods' students strive for excellence in academics, social interactions, and with behavior. To assist our students in their efforts to excel, we have a school-wide behavior plan that is guided by PBIS - Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Our PBIS plan is designed to:
We have three school rules that are taught, reinforced and expected throughout each day. These rules can be observed when a student demonstrates specific behaviors at school, at home or in the community. Here are some examples...
As students demonstrate expected behaviors, they earn "clicks" on their click cards. These cards should stay at school, to be used daily. On Fridays, clicks are counted and traded in for prizes and special drawings.
In addition to the click card and rewards, students' behavior is monitored through grade level systems, using stoplight colors and blue.
Each month, Laurel Woods has Community Construction Days to build school spirit and community within the grade level. On these days, teachers teach/reteach rules and expectations and address specific behavior needs within the grade level. For each Community Construction Day, students and staff will be invited to dress in school spirit wear.
If you have questions about our school-wide behavior plan or any efforts to help students on the "Road to Excellence," please do not hesitate to contact us at 410-880-5960.
