Did you know that Irene Reither Elementary is a PBIS school?
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports. Here at IRE we explicitly teach, reteach and positively reinforce school wide expectations both schoolwide and in the classroom. The Trojan Store is an example of how we positively recognize students for demonstrating our school wide expectations.

Trojan Traits:

  • We are Responsible
  • We are Respectful
  • We are Safe
  • We are Kind

At IRE students are recognized for showing great behavior and following the above Trojan Traits to be able to earn Trojan tickets for the store. When students are observed demonstrating these traits they are given a Trojan Trait Ticket which they can use to purchase items in the Trojan Store.

Store items include: pencils, erasers, books, small—med—large treasure box items, Trojan school spirit wear, and free coupons- such as extra recess, popcorn/pizza with the principal, sit by a friend and more. We are happy to say we have had 5 wonderful store sessions!!  The store will continue through the rest of the year. We have 3 more stores and 3 more reward days!

  • Future Store Dates are:  April 24 May 24 June 11
  • Future PBIS Reward dates are: *(Days where students who purchased coupons will be able to redeem) April 30 June 1, 14 & 15

Reward dates are when the students can redeem coupons they purchased at the Trojan Store. The dates generally follow the store. If your child is ill or absent on the reward day, please let their teacher know and they can redeem their coupon the next reward day.


Most importantly we want to take a moment to thank all of the following people and businesses for donating items and time to our Trojan Ticket Store: Connie Bennum, Debi Johnson, Melissa Haugen-Meszaros, Richelle Urie, Shalyn Lamphier, Angie Brooks, Stori Robertson, Patti Fouts, Adrienne Somera, Janene DeJong, Elizabeth Needham, Angie Richardson, Melissa Abraham, Michelle Wilson, Andrea Ames, Tori Brzozowski, Kacey Hersom, Joanne Wiebe, Chelsea Williams, Mrs. Chistopherson, Laurel Baptist Church, IRE PTA, Meridian High School Boosters, and the following businesses: Whatcom Co. McDonalds, Dairy Queen, Papa Murphy’s, Walmart, Lynden Safeway, Ferndale Grocery Outlet, Costco, Cash and Carry, Darcy Galbraith Dentistry, WA Dairy Council, Galbraith Mountain Pediatric Dentistry,  Allsop Inc. and more to come. We would not be able to offer all the awesome prizes and run the store without the above donors!  If you would like to donate, please bring in your items to the office and we will be glad to organize the items for the next store. Donated items needed and appreciated: small candies, chips (small bags) or anything for our prize boxes- small, medium and large prizes.
