Toney Elementary School is proud to pilot Positive Behavior and Intervention Support (PBIS).  PBIS is a data driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school's sense of safety, improve school climate, and support improved academic outcomes for all students at Toney.
At Toney Elementary School we have three PBIS Expectations for all Faculty, Staff and Students:  
Be Responsible,
Be Respectful,
& Be a Team Player.
We are excited about the possibilities of PBIS to improve our school climate.  All Faculty, Staff, and Students are working hard to implement PBIS with consistency and fidelity.

<font color=white><font size=5>Toney School Pledge

I pledge to be a Toney Tiger!
Smart, strong and Bold!
I walk the halls with confidence.
I practice self-control.
I exercise self-discipline.
I think before I act.
I know my deeds affect others,
So I practice kindness, respect and tact.
I come to school to learn each day.
To be all I can be.
I listen prepared with open ears.
To adults who help and guide me.
I love being a Toney Tiger!
