School wide, a child who is noticed by an adult as doing
something good (helping another child, walking quietly, etc) is
given a ticket. At the end of the marking period they "buy"
prizes for the tickets. There are little trinkets and larger,
teacher prizes (lunch with a teacher, dance party, play
basketball in the gym, etc.). As a class, when another teacher
notices the class doing something well such as walking quietly
in the hall, they can give the class a paw sticker. At the end of
the quarter, the class with the most paw stickers in each grade
get a popcorn party.
There are lots of positive reinforcements given individually and
to the classes so it's definitely not a punishment-based system.
