Cave Spring Elementary’s Schoolwide Discipline Plan
At Cave Spring Elementary, our goal is to use Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) to teach students how to make appropriate choices to avoid conflicts and accept responsibility for their behavior.
- The staff of Cave Spring Elementary School believes that students learn best in a structured, orderly environment.
- We further believe that the education of the child is the responsibility of the school with the support of the parents.
- Therefore, students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner which is conducive to learning and in a manner that does not interfere with the teacher's right to teach or other students' right to learn.
- We believe, through self-discipline, students learn to accept responsibility for their decisions and the resulting consequences.
- Working as a team, all stakeholders can enhance the success of our school.
Cave Spring PBIS reward system
Reward systems have been develop at different grade bands to best meet the needs of the students.
Kindergarten will earn smiley faces daily. They will need to earn 4 smiley faces to attend the weekly rotations. They will have to earn 4 smiley faces each week to attend the 9 week pep rally, e.g. 36 smiley faces in 9 weeks.
3rd - 5th grade have a clip system. They must be on green or yellow at the end of the week to attend weekly rotations. A majority of the weeks earning Friday rotations will be able to attend the pep rally, e.g. 5 out of 9 weeks must have resulted in earning Friday rotations.
We began a House Reward System during the 2016-2017 school year. The students are divided between four houses (air, water, fire, and earth.) Students earn tokens for their house by following Cave Spring expectations of being responsible, respectful and ready. The tokens are put in house boxes in the hall. Tokens are counted at the end of each week. The results are posted on our slideshow shown on televisions in the lobby and reported on Bee TV.
Each grade level has developed a reward system that works for their grade level to earn weekly rewards.
Rewards will be given each Friday for those students who met the expectations of being Respectful, Responsible and Ready throughout the week. Students must earn their weekly grade level points to participate in the Reward.
Friday activity rotations will be used for weekly rewards. Three centers will be provided for students to choice from if they have earned their weekly reward. The fourth activity rotation will be a study hall for those students who did not earn their weekly reward.
A House Good Behavior Pep Rally will be held every six weeks for the house that earned the most tokens. They will be able to participate in games and relay races while the other houses cheer for them.
