Crestview Elementary School has always strived to create a safe and stimulating learning environment for all students. In an effort to continue to improve our school climate, staff at Crestview Elementary have worked together to form a Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) plan. The focus of this plan is to create a positive school climate that fosters having a positive attitude, acting responsibly, working hard, and showing respect.
The students learned about PBIS, our new behavior program, at a whole school assembly on January 5th . The Positive Behavior Intervention & Support Committee created this program to promote the core values of POSITIVE ATTITUDE, RESPONSIBILITY, HARD WORK, AND RESPECT for all students and the entire Crestview community.

In addition to our kick-off assembly, we will display posters around the building and in the classroom, and modify our environment to make it easier for children to move safely and efficiently in the building. All of the staff at Crestview will be teaching our student the positive behaviors they are expected to demonstrate at school on January 6th . We will acknowledge and reward individuals and classes who consistently demonstrate these positive behaviors.
Please take some time to review with your child the positive behavior expectations described on the matrix located on the back of the letter that came home with your child. Ask your child to make sure he/she understands the expectations in different environments around the school. Please discuss the importance of these concepts and encourage your child to use his/her PAWSitive behaviors.
With your continued support and involvement, there is no question that Crestview Elementary will continue to be a place where students can excel in a safe and stimulating environment. Research shows that when the home and school work together, student learning is more successful. We look forward to working with you as true partners in your child’s education!
