Dear Parent/Guardians:

Judith A. Resnik Elementary School has always strived to create a safe and positive learning environment for all students. In an effort to continue to improve our school climate, staff at Resnik Elementary have worked together
to develop a Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS). The primary goal of this plan is to create a positive
school climate that fosters being respectful, responsible, and ready to learn.

The students will be learning about PBIS, our new behavioral program, during a grade level assembly the first week of school. In addition to our kickoff assembly, we will display posters around the building and on the buses to continually promote positive behavior. All of the Resnik staff will be teaching their students the positive behaviors they are expected to demonstrate at school. We will acknowledge and reward classes and individual students who consistently demonstrate these positive behaviors.    

Please take time to open the link at the end of this letter and review with your family the positive behavior expectations (in both English and Spanish). Ask your child if they understand the expectations in different locations around the school or on the bus. Practice the school-wide expectations at home and encourage your child to be respectful, responsible and ready to learn.    

Working together to promote positive behavior helps increase student achievement and gets our students ready for the 21st Century Learning Skills. Research shows that when the home and school work together, student learning
is more successful. We look forward to an exciting school year full of new learning.
