PBIS and the Way of the Wolf
Positive Behavior Interventions and Support
Ron Watson Middle School students will experience the “Way of the Wolf” as we implement Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). At Ron Watson, we expect our students to follow the “Way of the Wolf," which includes the following:
- Be Responsible
- Be Respectful
- Be Safe
- Be Excellent
Staff members will be giving Golden Tickets to students who follow the “Way of the Wolf” on campus. Students will use Golden Tickets to purchase items such as front of the line passes, smencils, snack bar items, and dance tickets.
To complement the “Way of the Wolf,” students will receive a “Wolf Rewards Card” every Monday with ten “Wolf Bucks” on each card. Students failing to follow the "Way of the Wolf” will lose a “Wolf Buck." If a student does not have his/her “Wolf Reward Card” and loses his/her “Wolf Buck,” or if a student loses three or more “Wolf Bucks” in a given week, he or she may receive lunch detention. Students who continually save their “Wolf Bucks” AND show excellence in their classroom behavior and expectations may qualify for a field trip at the end of each semester.
The following list of infractions are reasons that students may have their wolf card marked. Teachers will mark a student’s wolf card with their initials and put a number with the corresponding violation. Please use this list as a reference to any marks your child may have:
- Overdue library books
- Not following directions
- Rude / defiant / disrespectful
- Dress code violation
- Inappropriate comments
- Vandalism / graffiti
- Not cleaning up after oneself / littering
- Public display of affection
- Throwing things
- Inappropriate use of an electronic device
- Gum, candy, caffeinated beverages, etc. violation
Thank you, parents, for supporting Ron Watson Middle School and helping us promote “The Way of the Wolf” at home.
