HERO Program (PBIS)

HERO System - Promotion of Positive Behavior

The HERO system is designed to recognize students for good behavior and to address areas for improvement. 

Students may gain points by exhibiting positive behaviors and “Viking Pride”.  Positive points opportunities are determined by a focus team and may or may not be announced.  Hero points are also redeemable for certain incentives such as access to a game/recreation room, front of the lunch line privileges, reserved parking privileges, raffle tickets for big ticket donations, and much more! 

Sample of Opportunities to Gain HPs

  • Wearing of school lanyard and student ID card 
  • Participation in School Dress Up & Spirit Days 
  • Participation in SA rallies and events 
  • Having breakfast or lunch at the school cafeteria 
  • Attendance to particular school/athletic events

Class Hero Points (CHP)

While it is great to exhibit Viking Pride as individual students, it is of equal importance to showcase your excellence as an entire class.  Students will work side by side with their classmates in the classrooms, on athletic teams, and on many other projects throughout their years in high school.  Classes will be awarded CHPs based on competitions such as spirit cheers and participation in student dress up days.  

The class with the most accumulated Class Hero Points will be honored with “The Viking Sword” at the end of the school year!
