Kings Junior High School implemented a new program three years ago that supports the District's Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Program (PBIS). The program is called P.A.C.T. which stands for Pride, Attitude, Commitment, and Together.
The program supports PBIS by rewarding students for positive attitudes and good behavior. Students receive PACT points when caught doing something positive.
As they do every year, they kicked off this year's program with a PACT Party. The day started out with an assembly where the students listened to Jon Sanchez, Former Navy SEAL and CEO of Team Performance Institute.
The students and faculty enjoyed time together in Kings Stadium where they posed for a school-wide photo. They ate pizza and enjoyed Kona Ice. Students were encouraged to bring a canned good which "bought" them a chance at the dunk tank!
New this year at KJH is something called imPACT.
This is a 30 minute period in the middle of the day where students meet within their team.
The goal of imPACT is to
build ImPACTful relationships through academic, social-emotional, and real world conversations and activities. This ties directly into their PBIS system for building relationships and meeting the needs of the whole child. ImPACT time also focuses on the four pillars of PACT.
