Belshaw's "Bear Necessities"



Bear Necessities Belshaw.jpgBe Kind!


Be Honest!



Be Responsible!





Belshaw Elementary School is excited to be participating, for the second year, in the district-wide program called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). This is a comprehensive program which provides varying levels of support based on specific behavior needs of our students.


Our students are taught the “Bear Necessities”: Be Kind, Be Honest, Be Responsible. Students are taught to use the Bear Necessities in all aspects of school life by using “Toolbox” strategies.

We provide opportunities to recognize students who are making positive choices and demonstrating positive leadership.


Students earn Bear Paws, which are posted in the office for all to see, along with Bear Coins, which can be traded in for prizes. In addition, this year we are implementing the Bear Patrol to recognize students with perfect attendance.


Thank you for supporting Belshaws endeavors for positive student recognition. For more information about PBIS please follow the link:




TOOLBOX is a research-based, community-tested Kindergarten through sixth grade social and emotional learning (SEL) program.

Attendance Matters


Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
• Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) can make it harder to learn to read.
• Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
• Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
• Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.
Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit
in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance
will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.


Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
• Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
• Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has
the required shots.
• Introduce your child to her teachers and classmates before
school starts to help her transition.
• Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick. Keep in
mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign
of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
• If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to
teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on
how to make her feel comfortable and excited about learning.
• Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something
comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or
another parent.
• Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school
is in session.
