Building Community and Pride at the Elementary Level

Today's post is from Hilltop Principal Mike Moch

This year both Hilltop and Shirley Hills Primary School have embarked on an awesome adventure to build community and pride among our students using PBIS. PBIS, also know as Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, is a framework that helps to build positive character in students. What's super fun is all of the work the staff has done thus far to build a positive culture that focuses on students! Our staff will be part of this training for two years. During the time we will collect data, adjust our thinking, accomplish goals and most importantly focus on ways to make students love school and learning. We have started out strong by establishing expectations, rewarding the great things our students do and working to teach the skills necessary to change behavior.

In January, we will kick off our Mission Possible theme of learning and discovering great behavior for our schools. We can't wait to share more about our progress as the year progresses!
