PRMS implements the RAMS Way in hallways and in the cafeteria.
The Behavioral Matrix
The behavioral matrix serves as the place where our common expectations for the hallway and the cafeteria will be clearly spelled out. Your child will see the following posters displayed throughout the building.
RAMS Way Lessons
Throughout the year, students will engage in lessons during our activity period time. These lessons will teach the expectations laid out in the behavioral matrix. This goes along with the core principle of a school-wide positive behavior support system, which is that behaviors need to be taught just like academics.
Reward System—The RAMS Way 200 Club
After teaching the lessons, students will be reinforced for meeting the expectations with RAMS Way tickets. These tickets will be posted on the RAMS Way board in the cafeteria during traditional in-person and hybrid learning. When the board fills up, a prize drawing will occur for random students on the board. Then, the board will be emptied, and students will be able to submit more tickets. This goes along with the principle that positive behavior needs to be reinforced in order for it to continue.
