SCHOOL “EXPECTATIONS” FOR ASHTON STUDENTS (Parents, please review our expectations with your child)
Ashton Students are…
Ready to Learn!!!!
Ashton School has adopted PBIS, a school-wide approach to behavior management. PBIS is a proactive approach to behavior management in which students are directly taught behavior expectations just as they are taught academic skills.
The Positives of School-wide Expectations:
Students know what is expected of them in all school settings.
Students are acknowledged for following the school-wide expectations.
There is consistency for students as all teachers and staff using the same language
and promoting the same expectations.
A PBIS referral form will be sent home for students not following our expectations. This
is our way of communicating with parents so that you may exercise appropriate parental
influence to ensure proper behavior in the future.
Please sign the referral form and return it to school with your child.
Acknowledgement System Paws
Used to acknowledge students who are following the school-wide expectations. White paws are used to acknowledge individual students and red paws are used to acknowledge whole classes. At times, students and classes may be acknowledged with “booster paws” that are different from the white paws in how much they are worth and color.
Once a week, students trade in their white paws to purchase items. Charm necklaces or special school events are just some of the things students can purchase. Each classroom sets classroom goals and incentives for earning red paws. Classes may earn acknowledgements such as extra recess, “Fun Friday” and homework passes just to name a few!
Please refer to our PBIS Teaching Matrix for additional information about our expectations and “Debugging” strategies.
School Colors: Students are encouraged to wear a Navy blue shirt or Ashton shirt and Tan pants, shorts or skirt every Friday to show their school spirit.
