PBIS AT NETTLE MIDDLE SCHOOL
PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing the support needed for all students in our school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. Key focus areas of the Nettle PBIS system include prevention, positive behavior supports, using data to better determine the needs of students, and creating a culture of Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness to learn within our school.
Acknowledging students for their dedication to the program will help ensure the success of PBIS in our school and help support positive behaviors in the community. Any support you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
EVENTS THIS YEAR:
April Showers bring May Flowers – Keep your eye out for fun events on May 11th! Students and faculty will be racing to May with fun events for those who are filled with respect!
Spring Fling – The PBIS team hosted the April dance to raise funds for our efforts! It was a great night of laughter and dancing!
March Madness – Students at all grade levels competed to see who was the most respectful, responsible, and ready to learn group! The teachers were also competing for a free massage (top teacher) and a fancy luncheon. The 6th grade won! The teachers enjoyed a lovely spread while students got a fancy dessert after their lunch!
Secret Knight- In December, the secret knight (similar to secret santa) kept his eye out for the homeroom that had the most respectful, responsible and ready to learn students. Each Friday, homerooms were rewarded with goodies from the Secret Knight. It was a great way to boost spirits before the holidays.
INCEPTION OF PBIS AT DR. PAUL NETTLE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Our staff at Nettle School kicked off our PBIS program in September 2015. By setting forth clear social and behavioral expectations and directly teaching students about those expectations, it is our goal to create a positive, safe atmosphere for optimal learning.
The use of consistent positive rewards to celebrate students’ success is a key component of the PBIS system. Students who are observed following the behavioral expectations are reinforced with pink Nettle Notes. The students then put their Nettle Notes into the designated grade-level buckets. When the grade level bucket becomes full, the entire grade gets to earn a reward.
Our goal is to teach children alternate behaviors to ensure a school environment that is safe, fun, free from distraction, and helps all students reach their maximum learning potential. We appreciate your support. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Welcome parents, community members, students, and staff!
The staff at Nettle Middle School has adopted PBIS to focus on creating a safe, positive learning environment for our students. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Systems and is a school-wide program.

RECOGNIZING POSITIVE BEHAVIOR
Students are awarded Nettle Notes for being respectful, responsible and ready. Any staff member in the building can handout Nettle Notes when they catch a student meeting our behavioral expectations.
Students are rewarded with Nettle Notes and can use them in two ways:
1.) Every Tuesday, the PBIS store opens up to sell students a variety of goodies.
2.) Grade level teams and the PBIS also create fun activities throughout the year that students can earn their way into.
