Our school bus drivers recently received a brief PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) training to give them some knowledge of our 
school-based expectations for bus behavior and some examples of how students can display RAM STAR BEHAVIOR on the bus.  
R- Respect
A- Accountable
M- Mindful
S- Safe
Ram Star Expectations for our Glen Arden School buses will be posted on each bus (see picture).  This week our bus drivers will be actively rewarding students for demonstrating the 1st RAM STAR character trait of RESPECTFUL BEHAVIOR with bus awards and announced recognition.  Next week, our drivers will highlight examples of accountable bus behavior with students  :)

Note From 4th Grade Teacher Mrs. Schmidt
