Sea Lion Pride Recognition Program

Sea Lion

Promoting and Recognizing Integrity, Determination and Excellence

(Sea Lion PRIDE points)

At Southwest Middle School, we believe that all students should be recognized for positive behavior. Our Positive Behavior Support (PBS) team, along with members of our SAC, have taken the idea of PRIDE already in place at Southwest and transformed it into a program introduced on January 24, 2011, through which earned points may be exchanged for rewards.

How are points earned?

-Regular attendance at before or after school tutoring sessions (1 point awarded at the end of the nine weeks)

-Regular participation in a club/activity/sport (1 point awarded at the end of the nine weeks)

-Zero Tardies in a class (1 point per class awarded at the end of the nine weeks)

-Perfect attendance for the marking period (1 point awarded at the end of the nine weeks)

-Academic Success per marking period (3 points for 4.0, 2 points for a 3.0-3.99, 1 point for 2.0-2.99)

-Academic Improvement (Up to 3 points may be awarded for significant improvement, based on PBS members' discretion)

-Guidance Choice (1 point awarded at any time, based on guidance counselor's discretion)

-Deans' Choice (1 point awarded at any time, based on deans' discretion)

-Positive Referrals (1 point awarded at any time by presenting a positive referral form received from a teacher to an administrator at lunch)

How are points redeemed?

A call will be made on announcements that students may redeem points. A student will present their planner page and a PBS member will initial that points have been used. Lost planner pages or pages with a name crossed out will be void and the student will have to begin to earn points at 0.
