At Grant Watts Elementary School, we are responsible for our students’ intellectual and social development. Our goal is to help our students grow into confident and principled people as we seek to provide a safe learning environment that encourages students of all background to be creative thinkers who are excited about learning and about becoming productive citizens.
Towards this goal, we have in place a schoolwide system of behavior support that emphasizes teaching behavioral expectations. Students will be specifically taught what behavior is acceptable/unacceptable in order to be successful in the school setting.
Over the last several years we have given token awards to students whom staff members observe following our schoolwide rules. These rules are Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Kind. We teach and expand on these rules for all areas of the school during our first week back and again after Winter and Spring break. Additionally, we have a monthly theme and students receive counseling lessons around the theme over the course of the month.
Tokens are a form of “caught you being good” rewarding. Tokens have been well received by staff and students alike. In fact staff gave out a record number of token awards during September and October. Students are able to submit their tokens and collectively work to earn a schoolwide incentive such as popsicles, crazy hair day, etc. In addition to the schoolwide incentive our PBIS has partnered with our parent organization, GWPO, and we will have a TOKEN STORE open every Thursday during a.m. and p.m. recess this school year. Students may purchase small items or experiences using their tokens. We also honor one student from each room each month at an assembly at which students receive a prize.
In addition to recognition of appropriate behavior at school, we also have in place a discipline program. We feel it is important to explain to parents the entire program. The Behavior Expectation Matrix can be found in Resources for Parents.
If you have any questions regarding our TOKEN awards or our discipline program, please don’t hesitate to call or stop into the office.

A PBIS Message to
Our Students and Parents
The "PRIDE poster" below reflects our Positive Behavior Instructional Support (PBIS) expectations for students at Grant Watts. We believe the correct way to inspire students to behave well is to focus on good behavior. If you click on the PBIS link you can read our Grant Watts Behavior Matrix. This illustrates the expectations for safe, respectful, responsible, and kind behavior across all of our school settings. Encourage your children to discuss these pages with you. It will have a great impact on their behavior, and behavior has a great impact on their academic achievement! We strive for excellence!
Students at Grant Watts are learning to be successful by building good character traits.
