Here at CIS we strive to embed character education into our classes in many ways. Our character motto is listed below in the acronym TABS. We also use Project Wisdom messages on our student news broadcast called PNN. We work to mediate student conflicts and teach lifelong social skills. Students who display these traits and demonstrate good character get incentives that are described in the clubs and activities section of the website! They are also recognized through our "Paw"sitive Panther Award.
RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, HONESTY, MOTIVATION
CIS is committed to going the extra distance to help our students be successful. Our school mantra is to develop the whole child so that they can reach their potential and be productive citizens. Our school expectations are embedded in character education and taught through the following motto:
T ake Responsibility
A ct Respectfully
B e Honest
S tay Motivated
The four traits of character are taught in our classes through the use of the Panther Behavior Card. CIS recognizes our students for their positive behavior with assemblies, special events, field trips and student awards. We also reward our students though our PBS (Positive Behavior Support) plan. Students have the opportunity to achieve higher levels of behavior cards after earning at least 15 points per day and having a parent or guardian signature on a returned card.
