What is PBIS?

What is PBIS?

Listen to us ROAR! We are looking forward to another exciting and successful school year! We will continue to implement our school-wide environmental change to help foster positive behaviors in our students. This is called PBIS, Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. Our goal with PBIS is to improve the school climate and maximize academic achievement. 


At Edwards, we have adopted the Lion’s ROAR to outline the expectations that will support and create a positive and respectful learning environment. The Lion’s ROAR is all about respect, being on time and on task, aiming for success, and being responsible. 


Students will receive a Lion Loot as a reward for showing ROAR. Our goal is to acknowledge students who are doing the right thing. 


Examples of school-wide rewards are: raffles, lunch with the principal or staff, field trips, movie day, participation in iPad game day, and being let out to lunch five minutes early. We encourage you to review the Lion’s ROAR expectations with your child. 


Thank you,
