Please have conversations with your children about Bullying. What steps to take if they are being bullied and who they can speak to. STOMP OUT BULLYING!!!
PBIS Language: BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL & BE RESPONSIBLE
Parents/Guardians, please speak with your children about how important it is to be respectful, safe and responsible at school. Barton students receive Barton tickets when they are caught following the PBIS expectations in the classroom, hallway, bathrooms, playground, office, cafeteria and on the bus. Please encourage this positive behavior! At the end of each week, 3 students from each classroom are sent to the PBIS Store to pick a prize. The more tickets a child earns, the higher the probability they will visit the store. Keep it up Barton Students!!!
