Making the Connection - PBIS & Halifax Bucks!
What Is PBIS? PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports and is a school-wide approach to teaching students expected and acceptable behavior for Halifax County Middle School.
How Does It Work? A key strategy of our PBIS process is prevention. Positive behavior support for all students at HCMS is implemented in both the classroom and non-classroom areas. The support system allow for the utilization of Halifax Bucks and other positive reinforcements.
What Are Halifax Bucks? Students who display exceptional behavior will be acknowledged through Halifax Bucks. Any staff member can give a student a Halifax Buck as recognition for positive behavior. Once received, the student can save and redeem their bucks from the Halifax Bucks cart which will be available during lunch one day during the week.
What Can Be Redeemed With the Halifax Bucks? Several gift items, school supplies, games, special seating during lunch, sweet treats and other items can be found on the Halifax Cart
Halifax County Middle School is proud to be implementing the Positive Behavior Interventions and Support system as a school-wide discipline program which includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors. We hope students and parents will get excited about this program.
Please feel free to contact the school for further information about our PBIS program.
