PBIS Information

PBIS at Foster

Administration, teachers, students and parents all have expectations for behavior, but are we always on the same page?  The main purpose of Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) is to provide clear and consistent expectations for all students in all settings at Stephen Foster Elementary School.  Through PBIS, the Stephen Foster staff is working to create and maintain a positive, safe learning environment with consistent expectations. 

If you have had the opportunity to join us for morning flag salute, you have heard our PBIS motto: BOLTS!

Be prepared

Own Your Actions

Lead with character

Treat others with respect

Strive for excellence      

These behavioral expectations provide a common language for all members of the Foster community.  The Foster staff is teaching/modeling these expectations to all students in the real setting.  At home, please help enforce these expectations by providing your child examples of what each expectation looks like at home, school, etc.  Working as a team we will see a positive behavior difference school-wide. 


That’s The Foster Way 


Lyrics by Christie Palmer

(sung to tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”)


                                                                             B means “Be Prepared” 

                                                                        Each and every day,

Bring your homework and supplies,

That’s the Foster way!


O means “Own Your Actions”

Each and every day,

Admit your wrongs, apologize

That’s the Foster way!


L means “Lead With Character”

Each and every day,

Set the example, make good choices

That’s the Foster way!


T means “Treat Others With Respect”

Each and every day,

Peers, adults, property, too

That’s the Foster way!


S means “Strive for Excellence”

Each and every day,

Do your best, don’t settle for less

That’s the Foster way!
