School-Wide Positive Behavior Support Program"High 5"

High Five

Respect Myself
Respect Others
Respect the Environment
Be Safe
Be Ready to Learn
Our school-wide behavior management approach here at North Jones is "High 5". It is a school-wide system of supports that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors in our school environment. Throughout this system, a continuum of positive behavior support for all our students is implemented

in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (hallways, cafeteria, bus, restrooms, and playground).

The school focus is to shift the emphasis from being reactive in addressing behaviors and social skills to being proactive in prevention.  We, as a building and community, emphasize the teaching of appropriate behaviors through modeling, teaching, activities, and positive rewards.        


The fourth grade classes have started the year off learning about plants.  The students in Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Pierce’s classes dissected plants to identify all the parts of a plant.  The students enjoyed brushing the loose dirt away to find the roots. They were also able to identify the stem, leaves, and flowers.  Some students were surprised to find other things hiding in the dirt like caterpillars and worms.  This hands-on activity was a fun learning experience for the children.
