PBIS Adds Student Advisory Committee

        Have you ever heard your child come home and tell you about PBIS or the fun activities that come with it?  For the past few years BHS has rewarded students for their good behavior, through a program called Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports or PBIS.  Students are rewarded with bomber wings and three unique activities a year.  This year's PBIS will experience some changes, such as bomber wing competitions, a student advisory committee, and new activity days.  

One new activity this year for PBIS is the bomber wing competition.  This is not a competition for individual students but for each class as a whole.  The wing competition helps each student have a better chance of winning a pizza party by going above and beyond what they are expected to do, and it also shows class teamwork.  The entire grade has to work together to achieve their goals and win the party.

Another great addition to this year's PBIS program is the student advisory committee.  Each grade level will have two student advisories on the committee.  Students that are selected for this committee from the application process will have a say in the upcoming activities. This committee will help the PBIS teacher board pick options that are interesting to the student body.

This year's committee members are seniors Addison Cage and Andrew Koonce; juniors Chloe Carson and Seth Powell;  sophomores Sammy Long and Caitlyn Mason; freshmen Kaylee Rush and Lane Himes; eighth graders Elizabeth Austin and Anthony Streeter; and seventh graders Caitlyn Rogers and Casey Payne.  These students will receive the opportunity to have a say in all the activities for this year's PBIS.  The first activity day will be at the end of October and everyone will be invited to participate in the activities.
