Miller Elementary's Programs
Positive Behavior Interventions & Support (PBIS)
Lemonweir is proud to participate in TASD's Positive Behavior Interventions & Support (PBIS) program. This is a process for creating safer and more effective classrooms; it focuses on being clear and consistnt with behavior expectations, teaches respectable behaviors, and provides positive reinforcement when students are cooperating.
Tools are made readily available to students to ensure their success in the program and incentives are used to encourage the use of PBIS:
COOL TOOLS: School - wide instruction of expected behaviors. These tools can be used outside of the classroom, too! Ask your student to share them with you.
PAWS: Children demonstrating expectations earn PAWS points to put towards classroom incentives.
TIMBER REWARDS: Presented to students by members of the community when students show positive behaviors within their settings.
An intermediate grade class (3rd, 4th, 5th) and a primary grade (Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd) have students "buddy" up for the school year to do "Buddy" projects related to curriculum.
This is our very own Inner-school mail system. 3rd-5th graders are official postal workers (collectors, facers/cancellers, sorters and delivers) Students from every grade send letters to friends and family at Miller each week.
The Safety Patrol program enhances the safety of our students. In addition, it promotes the development of leadership skills and good citizenship qualities. A safety patrol’s job is to model for students the safety rules that have been taught in the classroom, and to assist students in safe transitions throughout the building. Patrols receive instructions in safety guidelines and procedures during their training and patrol meetings. Safety patrols are selected from the fifth grade. Patrols are selected with input from teachers, administrators. Consideration is based on student interest, commitment, responsibility, self-discipline, and a written letter as to why they should be considered a Safety Patroller.
