PBIS Reward is a big hit!

PBIS is an acronym that stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of schools. PBIS improves social, emotional, and academic outcomes for all students. The students in the Month of March, who met the behavior criteria, received an ice cream sunday in which they helped to make by choosing from several toppings.

Judging by the faces of the students who were eating their sunday’s, it is safe to say the students really enjoyed their reward!
