This committee is NOT PTO funded. Our teachers and administrators manage student behavior according to the guidelines of a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) system at Monte Vista. As part of that system, children can earn Honey Drops by demonstrating good behavior at school and then turn those Honey Drops in for Bees. Once a month, when the Bee Hive is open, kids may go down and "purchase" an item from the Bee Hive with their Bees as a reward for their good behavior.
Our administrators require volunteers to manage the Bee Hive once a month, for one day, during school hours. Tasks would include setting up the tables and items just after the morning bell, helping children choose items, and breakdown/clean up just before the afternoon bell rings to end the school day. Bee Hive days for 2018-19 will be the last Friday of each month, with that day being moved up to Thursday where Friday is a Teacher Work Day or Holiday (see committee calendar for specific dates).
Helping with the Bee Hive provides a great opportunity to interact with students, teachers and administrators in a positive way!
