Rolling Hills C.A.R.E.S. ProgramA Positive Behavior Support PlanWhat is C.A.R.E.S?C.A.R.E.S is an acronym that represents the following important life-long traits that our students will carry into all areas of their lives: (1) Cooperate with Others, (2) Act Safely and Responsibly, (3) Respect Others,Yourself and Property, (4) Encourage and Help Others, and (5) Show Good Sportsmanship.Why is C.A.R.E.S important in our school?C.A.R.E.S is part of a program called positive behavior support. Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is an international program to promote and maximize academic achievement and positive behavior. It is a school-wide program using positively stated learning and behavior expectations. We cannot expect that children automatically know what is expected of them; therefore we need to teach them. We know that when good behavior and good teaching come together, our students will excel in their learning. Rolling Hills is proud to be a part of this exciting initiative.How can you support PBS at home?• Reinforce the importance of the C.A.R.E.S traits when they are displayed at home.• When your child brings home a C.A.R.E.S. Token or Good News Card, speak with your child to provide praise and reinforcement for what he or she did that positively impacted themselves and/or others.
• If your child brings home a Behavior Notice and Apology of Action, review what took place and what choices he or she can make in the future.How can I learn more about C.A.R.E.S?Click on the link below for more information:
