A way to say "Thank You" to Staff- This is from http://www.sapulpaps.org/Liberty/ - special thank you to Jana Coatney for sharing. Each teacher writes a "fortune" to put inside the cookie. How cute is that? They did this for Bosses' Day.
Back to School Kick-off
Thoreau's PBIS team brought in the Milwaukee Brewers Racing Sausages to help support their annual PBIS kickoff meeting. Thoreau's PBIS team reviewed school wide expectations and set attendance goals. Students had the opportunity to learn many ways in which they can be Safe, Responsible, and Respectful! Staff from Thoreau provided visuals, and took the time to address questions or concerns from students. The Racing Sausages supported the kickoff by interacting with students and staff, racing with the staff and students, and participating in the staff versus students kickball game. Fun was had by everyone as Thoreau set the framework for a Safe, Respectful, and Responsible school year at Thoreau!

Emerson Elementary- Makes these books so everyone knows what to give gotchas for in each area of the school:
Staff and visitors flip to the location page to see what specific behaviors warrant a gotcha at their school.
Bulletin Board with prize amounts at the student store
Schedule for visiting with the principal in the school store to cash in gotchas
Prizes from the School Store:
Get to rent a special chair- This one is a Lion with a speaker in the pocket that "roars" twice a day
Get to wear the mascot costume at a school function
Cash in gotchas to spin the wheel of prizes in the school store with the principal
BINGO- Each day 10 names are called from the principal's copy of the triplicate gotchas. These 10 students come down and draw a number out of the box. They write their names on the BINGO board. Once a BINGO is formed- those 10 students come down to the principal's office to find out what special prize they won.
