In February we introduced a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention & Support plan (SWPBIS) to the students. We wanted a systematic way to teach and reward positive behaviors, so we developed the following pledge:
For the whole month of May we focused on "K - Keep our hands and feet to ourselves". Whenever students displayed this positive behavior, a staff member would give them a "Rock Star Cash" coupon. They would write their name on the cash and turn it in to the office. We kept a separate collection bin for each grade level, and would ask the students what they did to earn the cash before placing the cash in their bin. At the end of the month, we picked 4 Rock Star Students from each grade. Those 12 students enjoyed a Rock Star Luncheon with the principal (donated by McDonald's), and a Rock Star photo shoot. We will keep their pictures up in our "Rock Star Hall of Fame" for the rest of the year.
Our Rock Stars for May were:
Kindergarten - AJ Colaianni, Emma Razorsek, Carter Solivan, Addie English
Grade 1 - Kylie Phillis, Maguire McCafferey, Chase Riley, Nicco Salimbene
Grade 2 - Austin Hinkle, Maddy Oates, Emily Myers, Harper Burnstein
