Eagle I Cart

At Reba O. Steck Elementary School, we have been implementing a school-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports System (PBIS) called Steck's Eagle I's of Excellence.  PBIS is designed to teach students pro-social skills and to support behaviors consistent with a positive and safe learning environment.  Our students are working on exemplary behavior in our Eagle I's: I will be… respectful, responsible, ready, and safe.

Within our Eagle I program, we reward students, teachers and staff for displaying positive behaviors that reflect a dedication to the Eagle I's.  Students that follow our Eagle I’s are recognized with Eagle Bucks where they can purchase raffle tickets for prizes or buy rewards from our reward cart.  Other ways we reward students include positive referrals, good news notes, celebrations in class, and by hosting school-wide assemblies.  We are dedicated to the students and their success at Reba O. Steck.
