Each of the letters in the word "SWIM" stand for a different expectation. These expectations apply to all areas of the school. This vocabulary is reinforced continually throughout the school day by the whole Kingswood staff.
Kingswood students swim when each of them:
I--IS KIND AND RESPECTFUL
Our daily goal is to "keep on swimming!
After school each day ask your child how he/she followed SWIM expectations throughout the day. Try to use the vocabulary when discussing appropriate behaviors. Allow your child to verbalize different strategies for continuing to follow expectations each day. Please communicate with your child's teacher if you have any questions about PBIS and specific strategies. Celebrate positive behavior!
We encourage parents to continue the PBIS strategy at home. Have your family create their own list of expectations for different times during the afternoon and evening, for example homework/computer time, outdoor play, dinner, and bedtime routines. Celebrate positive behavior in all of these settings with some type of reward such as tickets, stickers, or a smiley face stamp, be creative. Enjoy the power of being positive!
