Super Cub Expectations

Our Super Cub Expectations are part of our School Wide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) system.

Importance of Positive Behavior Support

School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) is a framework for creating safe and orderly learning environments in schools, while improving the social-emotional outcomes for students. 

It is a proactive approach that relies on research based practices including: 

  • Developing clear behavioral expectations (Our Super Cub Expectations) 
  • Teaching these expectations 
  • Acknowledging appropriate behavior 
  • Consistently correcting inappropriate behavior 
  • Using behavioral data to systematically solve problems 

SW-PBS is built on a three tiered model that provides additional behavioral supports to students who are not responding to the tier 1 interventions. 

How School-Wide Positive Behavior Support Works at Our School

  • Teachers are provided with videos (see links below), stories, and sample lesson plans to teach students how to be Super Cubs. We teach how to Be Ready, Be Safe, and Make Good Choices in the hallway, multi-purpose room (MPR), playground, bathroom, and classroom. 
  • When a staff member “catches” a student using any of the expectations, a Super Cub paw and a compliment describing the expectation observed (“Thank you for making good choices in the hallway by following the leader”) will be given to the student. 
  • The student will place the Super Cub paw on the classroom bulletin board. 
  • When the class goal is reached (pre-determined by the teacher) the students and teachers will participate in a short “celebration”. 
  • Students are encouraged by earning individual paws and contributing towards their classroom community goal.
