Several middle school students pitched in to give the holiday season a warm welcome. As part of today's PBIS and ROAR celebration, some students chose to help make blankets. These blankets however are not for the students that made them, but instead will be donated to South Side Mission to spread warmth to people less fortunate.
These types of public service projects have become a regular fixture in behavior and academic celebrations over the past few years. Students who completed their assignments regularly over the last month were eligible to celebrate in many ways. Making blankets was one way to not only celebrate personal achievement, but also help others at the same time.
Congratulations to all students on their exceptional work and willingness to help others!
Both schools in the district were recently recognized by the PBIS Midwest Network for successful implementation and improvement of the PBIS system into their schools.
Pleasant Valley Elementary earned a silver recognition while Pleasant Valley Middle School earned a bronze. For the middle school it was their first recognition by the Midwest Network.
For those unfamiliar, PBIS stands for "Positive Behavior Interventions and Support." PBIS is designed to teach, monitor, and celebrate behavior for students who meet expectations.
Students are invited to attend monthly celebrations for meeting behavioral expectations for 3 of the 4 weeks each month.
Congratulations to both schools on this incredible accomplishment!
