What is the one thing that PEBS is all about? The entire PEBS matrix is based on respect for: Ourselves Others Our Environment Learning (Our own and others)
Where does PEBS take place? PEBS will be used in every area of our school, from the hallways to the playground, from our classrooms to the office and even when we are on field trips representing Gertrude Parker.
How will I know what is expected of me? Over the next few days your classroom teachers, specialist teachers, Mrs. Crews and Mrs. Sears will be teaching you about every part of the matrix so you know exactly how to behave in every area of the school.
How will I remember everything on the matrix? A copy of the matrix can be found in the front of your school agenda, in every classroom, throughout the hallways of the school and on our school website.
What about Caught Being Good? This year, Caught Being Good is going to be a bigger part of our year and will be a very important part of the PEBS program. Every morning on the announcements there will be names read of students who received Caught Being Good coupons the day before. At the end of each month there will be an assembly to celebrate our successes that month.
Getting Started Teachers will be reviewing every part of the matrix with their classes. We will learn the matrix, review the matrix daily and practice how to successfully meetthe expectations.
Final Thoughts Every student has the ability to experience success. The PEBS program is designed so that success is attainable for all students in all settings.
Good Luck to All!!! This will be a learning process for us all. Lets have a great year learning together and making the 2007-2008 school year at Gertrude Parker the best ever!!
