Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
What is School-wide PBIS?
One of the foremost advances in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and restrooms). Positive behavior support is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.
At Northside our current PBIS system includes: Town Hall Meetings, Procedures, YDI and RTI, along with classroom procedures and Guided Language Aquisition and Development (GLAD) that support positive behavior.

Northside Music Club
Dear 4th, 5th and 6th - grade parents:
The Northside Music Club demonstrated basic band instruments to the Northside students in May. We hope your child shared this information with you.
I will hold a parent meeting in Room 301 (the music room) on Wednesday, August 20 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the music club and accept registrations.
The Folsom Nicholson Music website has videos on instrument care. Please review these, or other online information, with your student and discuss if he/she would like to play flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or percussion (which includes drum, xylophone and other rhythm instruments).
Thanks to generous community donations, we will be able to loan a limited number of school band instruments to students in the music club. Families who attend this meeting will have priority in borrowing a school instrument. Other options for obtaining instruments will also be addressed.
Please RSVP at email@example.com to help me provide enough seating.
