The purpose behind PBIS is to build and reinforce positive behaviors inside our school. By supporting our teachers using PBIS rewards, we are building a stronger culture/environment for our staff, one where they can celebrate the positive things they are doing in their classrooms. To spotlight their PBIS work, OMS staff completed parts of our Staff Bingo Card including: I told a student I was proud of them, Made a positive parent contact, and Gave out 10 Spartan Tickets. Great job Team OMS!
