Heritage Weekly News - September 1, 2019

Dear Aviator families,

We have some exciting news: Heritage Elementary was selected as a California PBIS Gold Award School. This is the highest honor a school in Tustin can receive for PBIS implementation. You may ask what is PBIS? PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Systems and is a method of schoolwide behavior support that originates out of the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!). Using this method, we teach positive behavior and reinforce it through praise and SOAR cards. We also have a system to support children when they are struggling to learn school appropriate behavior and a series of interventions. Our school was recognized for its outstanding and rapid implementation of PBIS, its strong intervention system, and its overall high levels of expectations and behavior. A special thank you to our 18-19 PBIS team of teachers: Mrs. Tran (PBIS Lead), Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Melcer, Ms. Petta, Ms. Posavec, Mrs. Lindsay, Mrs. Fitch and Mrs. Martinez (our school counselor).

We celebrated the award through a surprise unveiling Friday morning.

See you Tuesday,
Mrs. RB

Birthday Book Club Sign-ups are now due. See Mrs. Del for more information.
