PBIS Welcome Tunnel

During the 16-17 School Year, the Beecher Dunbar Pembine School district will continue implementation of the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) Program, which is now re-named and part of our School Wide Panther Pride - Panther Way to Success programming and recognizes students and whole classes behaving in “The Panther Way” daily, weekly and monthly.  Being Respectful, Responsible, Safe and Productive are the key expectations the staff at BDP are acknowledging through the school-wide PBIS program.  A kick-off of the program was held on September 30th with all staff and students participating in going over the expectations during rotations, a special lunch with staff for all grades which included ice cream treats, and a fun "Pawsiitive Panther" photo booth for students to enjoy during lunch and recess.  There was also a Film Festival during the final assemblies where each class produced a filmed lesson on PBIS expectation and students voted for the best in each age group.

This year's program includes staff handing out Panther Paw’s to students exhibiting “The Panther Way” on a daily basis which the students can then use  to purchase items in The Panther Trade Shoppe, which is operated by a group of students in the Modified Business Management class.  The items in the store have been donated by staff, students, parents, and the community as a whole, with small businesses participating as well larger businesses awarding grant money to fund the PBIS program.Whole classes can be nominated for monthly drawings for monthly pizza parties at lunch when they exhibit a whole class period of "The Panther Way!" We are also tracking weekly behavior issues, and then targeting them the following week by re-teaching the proper way to behave and then teachers can give out 5pt Panther Paws to students doing so

The Shopko Foundation’s Community Charitable Grant program recently awarded the Beecher Dunbar Pembine School District Panther Way to Success PBIS program a grant in the amount of $750.00.  These funds will be used to support the programs incentive plans and celebrations of success throughout the school year.
