Red Raider Preschool’s Program Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support


Red Raider Preschool is participating in a statewide initiative to create a program wide system that will promote healthy social skills in young children.  Our school has a leadership team in place that has designed an engaging behavior curriculum.  It is based on the following ideas:

  • Children need to know what is expected of them.
  • Children need to be directly taught the correct way to behave.
  • Correct behavior needs to be encouraged and acknowledged.

Our school has adopted three main behavioral expectations, that are characteristics we want children to carry with them throughout their lives.   They are:

  • Be Kind
  • Be Safe
  • Work Hard

Your children are even learning a song about these expectations!  

(Sung to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)


Be kind, be safe, work hard,

Be kind, be safe, work hard,

At Red Raider Preschool,

Be kind, be safe, work hard.

You may hear staff members using phrases with children such as;

“You are being kind when you let your friend use some of your play-doh.”

“You are being safe when you use walking feet in the hallway.”

“You are working hard when you take care of the materials in our classroom.”

Feel free to use these expectations in the home setting as well!  For example;

“You are being kind when you help Mommy set the table.”

“You are being safe when you hold my hand in the parking lot.”

“You are working hard when you put all your toy cars away.”

Children will be provided lessons every week that more specifically teach the “rules” associated with each of these broad expectations in all the settings of our school.  Our staff uses the attached

PRIDE Matrix to define what the specific rules are for all settings in our school.  We would like parents to be aware of these rules so you can help support our efforts.

If you have any questions about our PBIS curriculum, please feel free to talk with your child’s teacher.

Thank you for helping us in building a strong and positive home-school connection!
