PBIS - Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

The Kewaskum School District strives to provide a safe and purposeful learning environment.  As a school, we want to be proactive in teaching our students the Kewaskum Way, positive behaviors in their everyday life.

Kewaskum Middle School is participating in a very important program this year called PBIS, which stands for “Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.”  We are using this program to help our students have a safe, positive learning environment, and to provide consistency in all areas of our school.  Please click on the more PBIS information link.

7TH GRADE HEALTH CLASS

In the upcoming week(s) the seventh graders will begin health class during their physical education period. This year we will be adding a lesson to the health curriculum that will address human trafficking and how students can protect themselves. Human trafficking is on the rise in Wisconsin, and new requirements (Public Law 114-22) are causing school districts to address this issue. 

We believe that educating our students about the facts, warning signs, and where to turn for assistance will help keep them safe. For more information, please see this online guide. As always, feel free to contact me, Mrs. Skelton (KMS principal) or Mr. Grotenhuis (KMS Health teacher) if you have any questions or concerns.
