This year, staff have been
implementing a school wide Behaviour Matrix, based on our work with one
divisional initiative, PBIS (Positive Behaviours Inverventions and Supports).
Our focus has been on noticing positive behaviours and celebrating student
efforts for the 3 Bs: Be Safe, Be Respectful and Be Responsible. Students meet
in classroom groupings, family groups (cross grade level groupings) and in
assemblies to discuss the matrix and examples of how we can positively meet
expectations for each area. Please ask your child to tell you all about the
behaviour matrix and how it is being used at Dr. Hamilton School. If you have
questions, feel free to contact Mrs. Ziprick or your child’s classroom teacher
for further details.
