We are excited about beginning the 2022-2023 school year with a fresh start and an optimistic attitude! At Greendale Elementary, we strive to ensure that your child has a positive experience every day at school. In order to do so, we will continue to implement Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a framework to teach and reinforce behaviors that we want our students to exhibit at school. Students and staff share clear and consistent expectations about how students should act in different settings (classroom, hallways, cafeteria, restrooms, etc.). We have created a PBIS Handbook for the new school year, in which you can find more information about PBIS, our school-wide behavior plan, acknowledgement system, etc. This will be uploaded on our school website with hard copies available upon request.
The school-wide expectations that we will require all students to know, understand, and follow are:
BE SAFE and READY TO LEARN
Working together to promote positive behavior helps increase student achievement and get our students South Carolina College and Career Ready. Research shows that when the home and school work together, student learning is more successful. With that said, you will get more information on PBIS throughout the school year. Practice school-wide expectations at home and encourage your child to BE RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, SAFE and READY TO LEARN. We look forward to an exciting school year full of new learning.
