As part of the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program at Horace Mann, there is a reward menu. Students earn stars for exhibiting expected behavior in all areas of the school, and then cash in the stars to "buy" rewards from the menu. Do you know what reward your favorite student(s) are saving for? Ask them!
Last week, we had our PBIS monthly Hoops and Dance Parties. Before you ask...Yes, they were two separate parties! Music figured prominently in both of them, though, as you can imagine. Students shot baskets with 3rd quarter Phys. Ed. Teacher Mr. Manderfield in the gym and boogied down to the sounds of Just Dance projected on the Promethean board by Music Teacher Mr. Waryk.
Actual photos were taken of our students enjoying their earned rewards...unfortunately the photos were too blurry to post. We look forward to more hoops and dancing at the end of March...along with our 3rd quarter school wide reward: A visit by Jungle Terry sponsored by PTA.
