PBIS @ East Union

PBIS @ East Union Intermediate Center

We are excited to announce that East Union Intermediate Center is rolling out our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) framework. 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. Our first two areas of focus are the hallways and the bathrooms.   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.  





Be Safe

  • Walk on the right

  • Walk in a line

  • Keep water in the sinks

  • Keep your feet on the floor

  • Hands on the lock- stay away from the top

  • Four students at a time

Be Kind

  • Leave it better than you found it

  • Hold the doors for others

  • Clean up after yourself

  • Use the garbage cans

Be Respectful

  • Use a volume O

  • Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself

  • Use a volume 1

  • Use polite language

  • Keep hands and feet to yourself

  • Respect others’ privacy

Be Responsible 

  • Listen to adults

  • Carry your belongings safely

  • Listen to adults

  • Go, Flush, Wash, Dry, Leave


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.  (Feel free to watch our video explaining the full process. Link: )  Be sure to take a few minutes and celebrate their good behavior at home with some words of encouragement or a high five!  


We will continue introducing additional areas of focus throughout the school year as we work and learn “The Lancer Way!!”
