PBIS @ East Union Intermediate Center

We are proud to share that East Union Intermediate Center is a PBIS school!  PBIS is a systematic way of teaching, modeling, and acknowledging students for meeting school behavioral expectations.  All students are able to achieve success and learn the necessary social and emotional skills that will allow them to be successful in and out of school. We have several areas of focus within our PBIS matrix.  The chart below showcases our expectations for these areas. We had lessons taught to each and every classroom on the first day of school about expectations in these areas and how students should conduct themselves.

Our “Lancer Way” Expectations-- Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible will continue to be taught and positive behavior will be celebrated. If your child tells you that they received a SHIELD Card then that means they were acknowledged by a staff member for demonstrating these expectations. Once they receive a SHIELD Card they bring that to the front office and go through a few steps to have it hung on our Principal’s 200 Board.  Be sure to take a few minutes and celebrate their good behavior at home with some words of encouragement or a high five!  Feel free to watch our video below which explains the full process.
