WHO: Lincoln students and staff
WHAT: Positive behavior, also known as PAWS!
WHERE: Everywhere in and around the school. Students learn and practice positive having positive behavior in the classroom, hallway, cafeteria, playground, restroom, bus, and at an assembly.
WHY: Lincoln is a safe and positive learning environment. Students and staff follow PAWS…making Lincoln a great place to be!!
HOW: When students are seen showing PAWS in any way, they are given a PAWS ticket by a teacher, administrator, para-educator, custodian, bus driver, or any other member of the Lincoln staff. Students write their name on these tickets and save them for our monthly PAWS assemblies and weekly drawings.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A PAWS ASSEMBLY?: All PAWS tickets are collected and put into a large bin. Tickets are drawn and each winner gets a spin on the prize wheel. Prizes include extra recess for your entire class, movie and popcorn party for your class, and Lincoln Lounge (a special lunch for you and your classmates). The more times you show PAWS behavior, the more PAWS tickets you earn, and a lot of tickets means a lot of chances to win a prize for you and your class! Classroom teachers participate in the ‘Minute to Win It’ game that can win their entire grade level something special!
Lincoln students also have a chance to participate in our monthly Lincolnpalooza. Lincoln students who have NO referrals and 1 or fewer stops in Intervention that month get to come!
