ISE Falcon Tokens
At the beginning of 2022, we introduced a new PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) program to students called Falcon Tokens. These tokens will be given to reward students for showing the "ISE Way" in common areas of the building, such as hallways, the cafeteria, and during bathroom breaks. The individually earned tokens will count toward a class total, which can then potentially earn the class a special treat like extra recess/free time! Check ClassTag and your Falcon Focus school newsletter for updates about this program, and be sure to ask your student(s) how they show the "ISE Way" at school!
The ISE Way: We are Intelligent, Safe, and Empathetic.
Want to learn more about the ISE Way and other PBIS initiatives? Click the "Information" menu tab and select "PBIS"!
