Students Recognized for Positive Behavior

28 middle school students posed for a photo and reflected on the impact of positive reinforcement on their school community as part of a monthly PBIS recognition celebration at Liberty Middle School.

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and is a school-wide student behavior improvement model that the school implemented to develop positive behavior to create a positive climate for learning.

Students are regularly are recognized by staff and teachers for demonstrating a safe, responsible, and respectful character and presented with a prize.

This December, Principal Jack Strassman decided to recognize teachers as well.
“I’ve always felt strongly that recognizing students and teachers for their efforts encourages others to follow suit,” he said. “It’s a fun way to remind teachers that they are doing a great job as positive role models or our students.”
