PBIS REWARDS

Today, Dr. Alford officially introduced the PBIS Rewards system we are using this year. You can visit www.pbisrewards.com and under students log in with the school code: 1315 and student code being your lunch number. You can see your account of how many points you have as of right now, and how many you have earned since the first day of school. Points were wiped out as of last Fun Friday. Reminder – you will need to earn enough points to “buy” the next Fun Friday! You can also go check out teacher’s stores and see other fun things you may look forward to.

There is also an app you can download if you prefer.
